Tech giant Apple is reportedly planning to launch its TV application on Android smartphones soon. As per a MacRumors report, the news comes from Twitter user ShrimpApplePro, who leaked the iPhone 14 Pro’s dynamic island hardware design and the exact box of the device.
The tipster claimed that the tech giant is testing the application internally and plans to release it soon. With the Apple TV app, Android smartphone users will have a more convenient way to access the Apple TV+ streaming service instead of relying on tv.apple.com on the web.
The Apple TV app on Android devices will begin with MLS Season Pass for users. Meanwhile, in October, the tech giant had released an update to its Apple TV application, used by smart TVs and other devices, that added HDR10+ support for Apple TV+ streams and iTunes movies.
Several features were added in the tvOS 16 update including support for video streaming using HDR10+ for the third generation Apple TV 4K.
Apple already offers its Apple TV app on Android TV and Google TV, as well as other television platforms such as Tizen OS on Samsung smart televisions and webOS on LG smart televisions. Not only Apple TV app, Apple also offers Apple Music app for other platforms like Android. While Apple keeps most of its apps exclusive to its own ecosystem and devices, services like Apple TV+ and Apple Music are among the biggest revenue generators for the company. Opening them up to people who aren’t part of the Apple device ecosystem is how Apple hopes to attract customers to its ecosystem while generating revenue.
