Apple’s popular TV app could soon be available on Android smartphones and tablets, expanding its reach beyond the Apple ecosystem. A recent job listing spotted by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman suggests that Apple is actively seeking a senior Android software engineer to join the Apple TV app team. The engineer’s primary responsibility would be to lead the development of “an application used by millions to watch and discover TV and sports,” strongly indicating that Apple plans to make its TV app accessible on Android devices.

What Does the Apple TV App Offer?

It provides several features and services:

  1. Apple TV+ Streaming Service: With the app, Android users would have a more convenient way to access Apple TV+, Apple’s streaming service that offers original content, including movies, television shows, and documentaries.
  2. MLS Season Pass: The app also provides access to MLS (Major League Soccer) Season Pass, allowing sports enthusiasts to follow their favorite teams and matches.
  3. Movie and TV Show Storefront: Users can purchase or rent movies and TV shows directly from the app, eliminating the need to visit a separate website.
  4. Cross-Platform Availability: Currently, the company offers the app on Android TV devices (such as the Chromecast with Google TV), but not on the main Android platform. If the app becomes available for Android smartphones and tablets, it would join a long list of platforms where the app is already accessible, including the iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV, Apple Vision Pro, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, Roku, Amazon Fire TV streaming sticks, and select smart TVs.

Unclear Timeline

While the job listing indicates Apple’s intention to bring the app to Android, it remains unclear when it will be made available to the public or if development has already begun. Android users eagerly await this expansion, as it would enhance their entertainment experience and provide seamless access to Apple’s content library.

As the tech world eagerly awaits further updates, Android users can look forward to enjoying Apple’s content offerings without leaving their preferred devices2.
