While Google and Apple have been fierce rivals in the tech sphere for years, we’ve also seen them play pretty well in recent years, at least when it comes to Apple apps on Google devices. The last thing we’re seeing the two of them work on is making Apple TV available on the new Chromecast with Google TV. This means that those who own this device will be able to watch Apple TV shows and movies on their TV, with more Google devices coming soon.
Users of the recently released Chromecast with Google TV will now be able to add Apple TV to the apps they can access on their TV. You will be able to access it by navigating to the Applications tab or by going to the application row on the For You tab. Apple TV will also be available soon on other Google TV devices like Sony’s Google TV and TCL, as well as the other Android TV-powered devices that will launch in the coming months.
If you have an Apple TV + subscription, you will be able to get access to watch the original shows, movies, and documentaries that are part of their library, including The Morning Show, Ted Lasso, Servant, and other shows and movies that they’ll release later. You will also have access to all the movies and shows that you have purchased from Apple. You will see personalized and curated recommendations and Apple TV channels.
You can use the Google Assistant, specifically voice commands, to open the Apple TV app or play a specific title from the platform. You can also add Apple Originals to your watchlist so you can view them later. These features are available to Google TV users in the US, but will be rolling out globally soon as well. Chromecast with Google TV lets you stream video up to 4K HDR at 60 frames per second, so you should be able to watch Apple TV videos on that.
