Apple TV is coming to the Chromecast with Google TV early next year. This means that Apple TV+ subscribers will be able to watch shows like Ted Lasso, The Morning Show, and Greyhound on their new Chromecast.
The Apple TV app will also give you access to all of the TV shows and movies you've purchased from Apple as well as get personalized recommendations for Apple TV channels. Up to six family members can share subscriptions to Apple TV channels through the Apple TV app.
This news means that Apple's original shows will be built into Google TV's personalized recommendations and search results, too, and you can save these shows to your Watchlist to catch them later.
If you've got a different Android TV device, you'll eventually get access to the Apple TV app, too. Google says that Apple TV will become available to more Android TV devices "in the future."
It might seem kind of strange to see Apple and Google teaming up like this, but bringing the Apple TV app to the Chromecast with Google TV is a win for both companies. For Apple, it gets their shows in front of more customers, which is especially important for a newer streaming service like Apple's. And it also makes the Chromecast with Google TV a more appealing option for Apple TV+ subscribers since it means they'll now have access to Apple's shows on that device.
