Google shares the announcement of the Apple TV joining Google TV's following the introduction of Apple Music to Google smart speakers and display.

The popular tech-company promises Google TV audiences more entertainment in one place with the launch of the Apple TV app on the all-new Chromecast with Google TV.

The announcement also details that Google TV audiences will gain access to Apple's subscription service, Apple TV+ (eligible if you buy a subscription). This partnership has made Chromecast with Google TV one of the only streaming devices to host all major video subscriptions.

With Google TV, users will be able to see Apple Originals in their personalized recommendations and search results, making it easier to find their favorite shows and movies. And, they'll be able to save them to a Watchlist to catch up on at a later time.

Google shares its plans to roll out the Apple TV app on Chromecast with Google TV early next year, and even more devices powered by Android TV OS in the future.

Google's New Chromecast

Chromecast is a family of dongles for your television, connecting to the TV's HDMI port to add smart functions to your TV, such as Netflix.

The Chromecast connects to your home network and can then be controlled with your smartphone. This will let you open an entertainment app on your phone and through Chromecast, play content on your TV.

The new Chromecast is different from its predecessor, the original $35 streaming stick that was a huge hit when it first debuted in 2013. Since then, the new Chromecast has replaced the days of using your smartphone or PC to control content to a now seemless full-feature streaming experience.

Google designed an all-new user interface for the Chromecast that hosts subscription services like Netflix, Prime Video, Disney Plus, HBO Max and now Apple TV. This content can be navigated with a remote featured in the box.

Chromecast with Google Tv is an impressive streaming gadget in how it checks off on being 4K, having Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos and the huge selection of apps.

Chromecast with Google Tech Specs, Price & Availability

The tech specs of the Chromecast with Google include the Chromecast dongle with HDMI and a voice remote along with a power cable, power adapter and 2 AAA batteries are included in the box.

For the Chromecast to work, it requires a TV with HDMI port, Wi-Fi network and a supported Wi-Fi enabled device.

The current price of Chromecast with Google TV is $49.99 or you can purchase the Chromecast with Google TV and Netflix Bundle for $89.99 .

Chromecast with Google TV is available in three shades: Snow, Sunrise and Sky and is available to buy online from the Google Store.
