Now Google and Vizio had reported that they have been building Chromecast enabled TVs such that the Chromecast will be enabled in them so you don’t need to plug any external device. Also, it will start a new era of the HDTVs which will replace or vanish the existence of Chromecast.
Buyers who lack the aforementioned smartphone or tablet needn’t fret, though. Vizio’s entertaining the notion of bundling with some TV models an Android tablet that’ll serve as both a dedicated remote control and programming guide. It’ll feature shortcuts to streaming services, Variety says, plus personalized movie and TV show recommendations.
Vizio’s Chromecast-enabled TVs are purportedly set to launch this spring. They may have competition: according to Variety, Google’s in talks with at least one other TV manufacturer about adding similar casting features.
