Chromecast is a device that connects to your TV in order for you to stream content, and while it is a handy device to have, the downside is having to pay extra money for it. However, this could soon change with the Vizio 2016 TV lineup.

A new report from Variety reckons that Vizio and Google are working with each other to integrate Chromecast so that you can do away with the need to purchase a separate Chromecast device.

We personally think this is a very good idea; although we can’t help wonder why Google never pursued this thing before. Having said that, it could be to do with the hope that Chromecast would have took off in a bigger way.
