Fios TV Chromecast. Fios App Reviews

Numm S. March 3, 2021. +Thumbs : 5. Comment : Been working fine for a while. Now, everytime I try to go fullscreen, the screen went to portrait mode. I'm using Chromebook Duet. This doesn't happen on other apps. Fios TV app was working fine for months until last week of February. Now I can't even watch anything since it's in Portrait mode. Forced Rotation flip didn't fix it either.

Verizon Services Corp.March 4,2021 Answer : Hello, unfortunately Chromebooks are not currently supported on the Fios TV App. Please see our FAQ of supported devices. Thanks.

Rolf Winch. March 26, 2019. Comment Only : Works okay so far, at least in my house while I'm on my local network with the setbox . I haven't tried it yet while not at home. Two complaints: won't work with my chromebook, even when I attempt to install it as an android app (other apps have no problem doing this). And, should be *much* easier to set bookmarks or save your favorite channels. If this app offered those 2 things, I would give it a 5.

Brian Sinclair. February 15, 2019. +Thumbs : 6. Comment : I've changed my review to accurately show how unhappy I am with this app. The old app wasn't great, but at least it worked on my Acer R13 Chromebook as an Android App. Well, Verizon killed the old app and made this one in its place. Of course, the new app cannot be installed on my Chromebook. The future of digital is not set-top boxes. The future is being able to view content on the platform of rhe user's choice. Wise up Verizon.

Ken Bender. August 28, 2020. +Thumbs : 1. Comment : This app is not chromecast compliant. Can't cast the screen onto a tv while away from home. So the claim that you can watch recorded content away from home is not true. The only time it works is when I'm sitting next to the dvr at home. Complaints get ignored. If 0 stars was available that's what they get. Getting rid of fios and subscribe to hulu would solve my problems and save me money.

Sheila Cole. March 12, 2019. +Thumbs. Comment : This app's freezes a lot and also it would be better if it didn't drain my battery on my phone. Also it would be better if they had the streaming icon within app that could connect to my chromecast or tv so that I wouldn't have to mirror it from my phone. I don't like this app I can't watch my record show when I'm not at home. I'm really disappointed and upset. I used to able to watch watch it all

kunal koul. December 26, 2020. Comment : It's good however I can't mirror to my chrome cast on android it won't show any video at all. Only audio can be heard.

-------------------

william furrer. June 21, 2020. +Thumbs : 6. Comment : The service works well with minimal outages (roughly 2 outages in 6 months for 20 minutes total). Interfaces easily with chromecast. The channel guide function is comprehensive and accurate. One star deducted for (1) the favorites and recently channel functions both of which drop saved favorites randomly and (2) the what's on feature which has become less useful with less channels detailed after recent updates.

Dan Olsheski. September 17, 2019. +Thumbs : 3. Comment : Can no longer share my screen with Chromecast. I used to be able to use my Chromecast and watch shows in another room where we don't have a STB but after my phone updated to Android 10, my tv gives me a black screen and only the audio. I miss being able to use this app and caring my screen.

Billy Thomas. November 26,2018. +Thumbs: 2. Comment : All this app does is let you stream your cable TV on your phone. It would be better if you could connect seamlessly to your TV (Chromecast, Apple, etc) or control your cable box (not compatible or bugs with Verizon provided boxes).

Verizon Services Corp.November 26, 2018. Comment : Sorry for the inconvenience. We would love to hear more about your experience to determine how we can improve our overall functionality, please create a ticket through the app: Settings- Help Center- Report a Problem

Josh B. September 29, 2019. +Thumbs : 5. Comment : A stupendously bad app. In a world of chromecast and slick streaming apps, the ancient legacy cable industry is struggling. This app - with its confusing layout, awkward interface, and tendency to crash - presents a great rationale for cutting the cord.

-------------------

Lisa T. September 18,2019. +Thumbs: 8. Comment : It is okay. Will not chromecast which is really inconvient when traveling. There are TONS and TONs and TONs of commercials when watching TV show on demand (makes feature not really worth it). I stopped watching many shows mid watch because of the frequency of commercials, also the countdown timer for ads looks deceptive.

-------------------

Andrew Cochran. April 5, 2020. +Thumbs : 16. Comment : Is anybody else having difficulties Chromecasting to TV? Doesn't work for me. Have open ticket w Verizon to try to fix. Otherwise it's a good app for me. Edit April 4: Verizon didn't respond and didn't fix the problem. Cannot Chromecast FiOS. Can ESPN & HGTV.

-------------------

Ronald Sumlin. June 16, 2020. +Thumbs : 5. Comment : Miserable app on chromebook. Offers a very small number of channels compare to what's available on TV and the display is only about 25% of the screen on my chromebook. Get used to looking at a tall, skinny and distorted video.

-------------------

A Google user. October 2, 2018. +Thumbs : 1. Comment : Overall satisfied with the app. Wish you could Chromecast the channels while on home network, but I understand the reasons why that level of functionality isn't supported.

-------------------

Brent Siniawski. January 20, 2019. +Thumbs : 1. Comment : This works fine for me, but i want to watch it on my Chromebook (which can download Android apps) but this isnt compatible... why?? This would make the app vastly better. Please turn this on / make it compatible with Android apps for Chromebooks!!!

-------------------

Michael Butler. February 12,2019. +Thumbs : 1. Comment : the new app is not available on my chromebook. i used the old app when traveling and at home. called verizon and they have no indication when that would get fixed.

-------------------

A Google user. February 23, 2019. +Thumbs : 4. Comment :Previously, I had a poor FIOS internet connection that affected the way the app performed. I'm enjoying the app now, but I would like it to work with Chrome Cast. Please consider it.

Verizon Services Corp. December 3, 2018. Comment : Sorry for the inconvenience. We would love to hear more about your experience to determine how we can improve our overall functionality, please create a ticket through the app: Settings- Help Center- Report a Problem

Doug Schollenberger. December 28, 2018. +Thumbs : 5. Comment : The FIOS app does not work properly on a Chromebook computer. Navigation is clunky and the small viewing window stops functioning when you try to bring up a second app.

-------------------

Rob Macri. March 23, 2019. Comment : I wish it offered Chromecast support as I'd love to put it on my monitor at work via Chromecast. Also it's not working with the Android Q beta, hopefully that's fixed soon.
