Good news for Apple TV fans it is now available on Google TV devices globally, starting with the tech giant’s latest Chromecast.
Apple and Google have teamed up to make the Apple TV app, which includes the TV+ streaming service, available to the Chromecast with Google TV, which the tech giant released last year. More Google TV devices will follow, the company said.
The service will still require subscription to Apple TV+, but that brings access to original content such as Ted Lasso, The Morning Show, For All Mankind and Servant. Subscriptions can be shared with up to six family members as part of Apple’s Family Sharing feature.
In the US, Google TV users will see Apple Originals in their personalized recommendations and search results. You’ll also be able to ask the Google Assistant to open the Apple app or play one of its exclusive titles. These features will roll out to the rest of the world “in the coming months,” Google said.
The Apple TV app and the other features mentioned here will also be available on the new Google TV sets announced at CES from Sony and TCL. Google says it plans to “roll out to more Android TV-powered devices in the coming months.”
