Apple Could Bring Apple TV App To Xbox And PlayStation Consoles

It seems that Apple’s TV ambitions are starting to grow because according to multiple reports, Apple is apparently planning to bring its Apple TV app to more platforms like the Xbox and PlayStation consoles.

The initial report came from Windows Central who claimed that Apple is working with Microsoft to bring the Apple TV app to Xbox consoles. The feature was actually spotted by some Xbox Insiders and later corroborated by Windows Central themselves. 9to5Mac later followed up by saying that Apple is also working with Sony on a similar feature, although they also note that for the PlayStation, there could also be HomeKit support.

While the PlayStation is hardly a smart home device, having HomeKit support could open up some new possibilities, but we’ll have to wait and see how this is implemented. Apple has already brought its Apple TV app to other non-Apple devices, like Samsung’s smart TVs, Vizio, Sony, and LG.

However, this would be the first time Apple would be bringing it to a console, which is interesting. With the inclusion of an Apple TV app, for the most part it should do away with the need for the Apple TV hardware itself if watching movies and TV shows are pretty much what you plan to do.
