Does the Vizio TV Have Bluetooth?
Yes, Vizio TVs have Bluetooth, but note that only the latest models of Vizio TVs have standard Bluetooth, while a few older versions of the Vizio TVs have Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) support.
The Bluetooth LE and standard Bluetooth use the same amount of radio frequency but the main difference between them is power consumption, as the low-energy Bluetooth uses less power than the standard Bluetooth while maintaining the same communication range.
However, with low-energy Bluetooth, you can’t directly connect high-energy Bluetooth accessories like AirPods, headphones, etc. to the Vizio TV, and to connect to a high-energy device, you need to use 3.5 mm AUX.
