Not long after welcoming Apple Music to its smart speakers, Google has announced that it has reached a deal with its competitor to bring the Apple TV app to its streaming devices. - "With the addition of the Apple TV app, Chromecast with Google TV users can access Apple TV+ (you’ll need a paid subscription).
