There’s been hints of an Apple TV app coming to a Microsoft device for a while now and today the suspicions had by many have been confirmed.
Over the last day or so (via WC), various users have reported seeing an official Apple TV app showing up for them on their Xbox One consoles. The app’s appearance seems to be very limited currently, likely suggesting that it’s in its testing phase before a proper rollout to the general public.
No official announcement has been made about the Xbox Apple TV app though more details will likely be revealed soon now that the app’s been spotted.

The Apple TV app provides users with most of the functionality of the Apple TV devices including access to the new Apple TV+ service. Apple TV apps have also launched on Roku, Amazon Fire TV, and a variety of smart TVs so its arrival on Xbox consoles isn’t that much of a surprise.
Now if only Microsoft would release a Movies & TV app on Apple’s iOS devices.
