There's reason to rejoice for Android users who have been waiting for an improved method to watch Apple TV Plus content on their smartphones. Bloomberg discovered a job posting on Apple's careers page that suggests the tech giant is planning to release an Android app for Apple TV.

A senior Android software developer is needed to join the Apple TV app team, according to the listing. The position entails creating new features and improving the app, which millions of people currently use to watch and discover sports and TV series. For Apple, which hasn't yet announced an Android version of its Apple TV app, this is a big step. In the past, Apple has been quite selective about which competing platforms it allows its apps to be available on.

There's a lot of speculation that further information may be disclosed at the next WWDC in 2024. The event might be the ideal venue for Apple to reveal its ambitions to bring the Apple TV app to Android users. It starts with a keynote talk on June 10 at 10 am PDT (10:30 pm in India).

If verified, the action will be a calculated step forward for Apple's streaming service, possibly giving it a stronger advantage over rivals in the congested world of digital entertainment. While Ted Lasso and The Morning Show have achieved cult fame, Apple has been progressively increasing the number of original series it airs, including Sugar and Monarch Legacy of Legends. Additionally, Apple now has greater leverage to compete with established companies like Netflix and Disney thanks to a recent push into live sports. The Apple TV app for Android might increase the service's accessibility and reach, boosting Apple's services division, which has been the unusual "green" in the midst of declining iPhone sales.
