  • Google TV is pretty much what Vizio Smart cast has been since 2016. No locally installed application, it all relies on cromecast. Even the interface that you pull up on the tv. Since I got my 2016 Vizio P65-C1 (first TV with built-in Chromecast), and learned about how Smart Cast works. I wondered if Vizio made a deal with Google to set this up. Vizio spent a lot of time and money designing a great high-end mid-range TV and they needed an OS that was more flexible and easily upgradeable, to replace the horrible interface on previous models. Take Android TV on the Sheild and throw SmartCast on top, you have Google TV. 😉
