Google announced today that Apple TV+ is available on Chromecast with Google TV and will come to more Google TV devices in the near future.

“Google TV gives users with subscriptions to Apple TV+ the ability to tune into award-winning original shows, movies and documentaries from the world’s most creative storytellers,” Google’s Jonathan Zepp writes. “You can enjoy Apple Originals, your library of movie and TV show purchases from Apple, as well as personalized and curated recommendations and Apple TV channels. And with Family Sharing, up to six family members can share subscriptions to Apple TV+ and Apple TV channels.”

Additionally, those in the U.S. can browse Apple Originals in their Google TV personalized recommendations and search results without having to first run the app. You can also use Google Assistant’s voice control functionality to open the Apple TV app or play an Apple Original title.

Looking ahead, Apple TV+ will soon be available on Google TVs from Sony and TCL, and it will roll out to more Android TV-powered devices in the coming months, Google says.
