Google said on Wednesday that the Apple TV application and paid streaming service Apple TV+ will be available on Google’s latest Chromecast device early next year.
In the past, Apple sometimes reserved access to its services for its own hardware device ecosystem, but recently it has relaxed its position in order to maintain the development of its services business.
Google said in a blog post that in the future Apple TV will be able to be used on more devices using the Android TV operating system.
Google said that Apple Music will be released on Google’s smart speakers last week. Google Assistant-enabled devices (such as Nest Audio, Nest Hub Max, and Nest Mini) are adding support for Apple Music. Google announced that it will use Apple Music on smart speakers and displays that support smart assistants in France, Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States. You can choose Apple Music as your default music streaming service, and then you can tell Google Assistant to play songs or playlists, and then they will be streamed through the service. In this way, Apple’s music streaming service has joined services such as Spotify and YouTube Premium.
Last year, Apple provided TV applications on Amazon’s Fire TV devices and Roku’s platforms. Fire TV Stick owners can install the Apple TV application by going to the “Applications” section and then searching for the Apple TV application. After finding the Apple TV application, click the “Get” button to install it. You can also go directly to the Apple TV app list on the Amazon website and get the app.
