Vizio Announces Lots Of New Soundbars And A Multi-room Speaker

The new VIZIO SmartCast app simplifies the entire whole-home audio experience, allowing users to turn their iOS or Android mobile devices into a Crave speaker remote for seamless play, pause and volume control from anywhere in the home. The app makes it incredibly convenient for consumers to search, discover, browse and cast their favorite music to Crave speakers in any room. Seamless multi-room functionality allows users to cast the same song, or send a different song, to multiple cast-enabled speakers and sound bars connected to the home WiFi network. While conventional home audio speakers typically connect solely via Bluetooth, the new VIZIO Crave speaker collection allows consumers to stream their favorite music, podcasts and internet radio stations over WiFi as well as Bluetooth. With WiFi streaming, listeners are no longer interrupted by phone calls, texts and other disruptive notifications that commonly occur when streaming over Bluetooth. WiFi streaming also helps conserve battery usage on mobile devices, and frees up the mobile devices for other tasks. Best of all, WiFi steaming allows for better audio quality compared to Bluetooth.

With Google Cast built into every VIZIO SmartCast multi-room speaker, consumers can easily stream millions of songs from music apps they already know and love. Just tap the Cast button to stream music directly over WiFi to any VIZIO SmartCast speaker from anywhere in the home. Unlike other multi-room speakers that use proprietary software, VIZIO SmartCast speakers make streaming simple with Google Cast. Consumers can simply Cast from music apps they already have on their mobile devices.

Vizio first announced plans to bring Google Cast to its wireless speakers back in March. Now that the multi-room SmartCast Crave 360 is available for purchase, Vizio hopes you'll give it a look instead of splurging for some Sonos gear. As you might expect, the speaker that looks kind of like an Amazon Echo is the Crave 360. The $250 circular device touts 2.1 audio, the ability to beam sound in any direction and it comes with a detachable charging base. Disconnect it and you've got a portable speaker with 8 hours of battery life.

To manage the multi-room setup, you'll need to employ the Vizio SmartCast app. However, you can control your music and other content from any Cast-friendly applications. This is another area where Vizio differs from Sonos. Right now, you have to use the Sonos controller app to manage music, but the company recently announced that Spotify Connect and other integration is on the way. What's more, these two Crave speakers play nice with Vizio's SmartCast soundbars that are already on sale. Speaking of availability, you can snag the Crave 360 now directly from Vizio and at Sam's Club while the Crave Pro is listed as "coming soon."Turn on browser notifications to receive breaking news alerts from EngadgetYou can disable notifications at any time in your settings menu.Not nowTurn onTurned onTurn on
