Ratings and Reviews
Does anyone at Vizio use this app?
Okay, I like the concept of the way this works. I love technology and I am all about reducing the number of things I need to carry and keep track of in life. Very forward-thinking. However, why do I have to go through so many steps when I open the app to get to the spot I need to turn on the TV and sound bar??? Opening the app should default to the TV controls, not to the “discover” section. You have to open the app, click on “control”, then click in the upper right hand corner on devices, wait for your devices to load up, then choose the device, then wait for the buttons to load up (when it works right). Not a smooth process....especially for tech in 2019. I could lose my remote, find it, and turn on the TV in the same amount of time it takes me to use this app. Overall, disappointed, and my next TV will not be a Vizio SmartCast unless this is improved. Customer service seems to think this is a non-issue...maybe this review will inspire some change for a more streamlined process?? Please?!??

Hello Zach2992, thank you for your feedback on the application it is appreciated.
Update believed to screw tv up
I had bought a vizio 65” E-series 4K smart tv 2years old and for some reason as soon as the update was pushed out the tv started to power on and off by itself never had any problem till now didn’t buy the extended warranty because I have 2 other vizio TVs that are 8-9 years old never had any issues with them. I believe they are getting ahead of there selves with there software updates. Until today I was nothing but vizio, Now not so sure unless they prove there selfs to take care of loyal customers like me! I called vizio and they said there was nothing they can do for me so there is nothing I can do for you but let other people know what I’m dealing with after spending a lot of money on your brand all these years!!! And still I went and bought the 2018 version with a 4 year warranty because that’s how loyal I am another 800 so if something happens I will never ever buy a vizio tv again we’ll see how it goes this time please know what your doing with these updates before you push them out! Also it’s Christmas and I have 3 kids so this is a really bad time for me! I thinking twice about giving you another chance and taking this new one back and going with someone else!
Please urgently fix!!!!
Latest update broke the pairing cannot pair same problems as all other latest reviews
Update: just now (about 5 min from writing this review) I decided to use my old iPod running iOS 9 and my iPhone 5s running iOS 10 and download the Vizio app which of course is not supported until you go to your purchase history and download it there. It then asked me if I wanted to instal most recent version compatible to the device. BAM it worked perfect in fact as soon as i opened the app it instantly worked better than it ever has and recognized device instantly. So clearly this latest update is to blame.
Response to developer: My issue? I stated my issue and it’s exactly the same as all the tons of latest reviews…. Your latest update broke the connection and communication with app and soundbar. Meanwhile, previous version immediately connects and works without issue. And yes I’ve reset, removed device on app, attempted re establishing connection, I’ve tried everything possible and no go. I’ve looked at your responses at “solutions” on other reviews and it seems they are all the same a typical cut and copy response to everyone telling you that latest update broke the connection and communication. It’s not an issue with soundbar or network otherwise previous app version wouldn’t connect instantly and work like a charm. But rather, with this latest version of the app you get a message indicating unable to connect.
