Apple TV now available on Chromecast with Google TV – 9to5Google


As announced in December, Apple TV is now available on the Chromecast with Google TV. The new app allows you to watch original Apple TV+ content, as well as access existing iTunes movie and television show purchases.

The UI is quite straightforward with a bar at the top letting users navigate between Watch Now, Movies, TV Shows, Sports, Kids, Library, and Search. The app makes use of large cover images and carousels of cards.

It will also surface third-party streaming subscriptions through Apple TV Channels, and allow for personalized and curated recommendations. The latter is done through Family Sharing where up to six people can share memberships.

Apple TV will integrate with Google so users can see Apple Originals in recommendations and search results.

And with Google Assistant, you can also use your voice to ask Google to open the Apple TV app or play an Apple Original title. If you aren’t ready to watch right away, you can add Apple Originals to your Watchlist for later. These features will roll out globally in the coming months.

This app was originally limited to Sony sets running Android TV, but today’s launch is the start of broader Android support.
