The Apple TV app is now available for Google’s Chromecast in 2020. It was announced in December that Apple’s streaming app, which offers access to the Apple TV Plus originals, would come to the difficultly named Chromecast with Google TV. As of today, owners of the excellent $ 50 device can download Apple TV and start using it.

Note that you can also add Apple’s original shows and movies to Google TV’s universal watch list. Some major streaming services like Netflix have decided to join the Watchlist in the months following the release of Chromecast, as they apparently prefer to keep that kind of functionality in the app itself. Which 9to5Google reported in November, the Google TV mobile app does not even include Netflix recommendations anymore.
