Official: Apple TV App Is Coming To Google Chromecasts Starting Early Next Year
Apple TV app will be coming to Google’s Chromecasts starting early next year as has been confirmed by Google.
Initially available for Chromecasts running Google TV, those running Android TV will also be getting the app at some point in the future as well.
The new app will not only give users the chance to watch original Apple TV+ content, but it will also allow them to watch TV shows and movies that have been bought or rented via the iTunes Store. Apple Channels will also be included, giving users an additional avenue through which to watch content from third parties.
As an Apple TV+ subscriber, you can tune into award-winning original shows, movies and documentaries from the world’s most creative storytellers. This includes titles like “Ted Lasso,” “The Morning Show,” “Defending Jacob,” “Greyhound” and “Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special.”
The addition of the Apple TV app, and by extension Apple TV+, means there are no major streaming services that aren’t available via the Chromecast.
That’s a huge deal and could help make it the go-to streaming device for people who want to be able to watch whatever they want, wherever they want so long as they have an HDMI input spare.
Apple TV+ is available as a monthly subscription either on its own or as part of the Apple One bundle.
