Google has announced that the Apple TV app will be rolling out to the new Chromecast with Google TV dongle starting early next year. Alongside this, Google TV owners can access their Apple TV+ with a subscription and also have access to their library of movie and TV show purchases from Apple.

Apple TV app coming to Chromecast with Google TV
Google points out in the announcement that the Chromecast with Google TV is one of the only streaming devices with all the major video providers, including Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, Netflix, Disney Plus, HBO Max, Peacock, and Apple TV.
Google has also announced the Apple TV will come to more Android TV devices in the future. So, currently, there is no tentative launch timeframe. But it is good to note that Google has addressed Apple TV app will come to other Android TV devices as well. For now, the app is coming to the latest Chromecast with Google TV. Google has mentioned “early next year.” Again, there is no specific launch date announced, but we expect it to start surfacing on the newest Chromecast somewhere in January or February.
Currently, Apple TV is available only on select Sony’s Android TVs. The support rolled out in October this year.
This is the second partnership between the two companies this month. A few days back, Apple Music was rolled out to Google Assistant-enabled smart speakers and displays.
