Official Apple TV app makes its way to some Amazon Fire TV Sticks

Where Apple – that other tech giant that doesn't make the world's most popular operating system – was once able to lock users into its walled garden of premium-priced hardware, the tech industry has recently been shifting further from what devices are (processors, cameras, and displays) and more toward what they can do through software. Apple's recent pivot to monthly subscription services has had a notable impact on the Cupertino company's business model, forcing it out of its hardware ecosystem to capitalize on the wider world of devices. We saw this a few years ago when Apple Music came to Android in 2015, and now we're seeing it again with the official Apple TV app landing on some Amazon Fire TV devices.

AMD Link now lets you stream your PC games to Android TV and Apple TV

When the AMD Link app launched way back in 2017, it was a pretty limited experience, merely allowing you to monitor your PC's resource utilization and other statistics remotely. Once it picked up the ability to stream games, à la Nvidia GameStream, Moonlight or Steam Link, AMD GPU owners started getting antsy for a way to bring the experience onto their TVs. Luckily for them, the AMD Link app has come to both Android TV and Apple TV.

25 things Apple announced for iOS 13 that we want on Android

Every year, just like Google conducts its I/O press conference to introduce developers to the new Android version and announce all the upcoming features and APIs it will bring, Apple does the same. Its WWDC event took place this past Monday and, as any mobile enthusiast, we tuned in to see what the company has in store for its operating systems. While the dominating rhetoric over many years has been Apple's uncanny ability to announce an Android feature that has existed for years as innovative and ground-breaking, things have changed recently. 2019 was one of the most interesting thanks to plenty of both small and big additions to iOS 13 that leave us a little doe-eyed and jealous.

YouTube TV is now live for both Rokus and Apple TVs

YouTube TV looks like a pretty sweet deal for those in supported markets. But, there are a few drawbacks. Most notable among them used to be device support, popular set-top streaming devices like Rokus and Apple TVs didn't have apps to support the service. If that was holding you back from being a YouTube TV subscriber, you should be happy to hear that Google just rolled out apps for each.

30 days later, Chromecasts still aren't available on Amazon

30 days ago, Amazon announced that it was in the process of assorting Apple TVs and Chromecasts to start selling them again. Since then, the Apple TV and Apple TV 4K have been available and sold on the site, but the Chromecast and Chromecast Ultra are still showing as "Currently unavailable" from Amazon, with no third-party sellers at all. Even searching for "Chromecast" on Amazon doesn't bring up the product pages linked above, you'd have to know the URL to see them. We've reached out to Amazon several times over the past weeks to ask about this and to inquire about an exact availability date, but were told there were no details to share.

YouTube TV coming to Android TV, Xbox One, Apple TV, and smart TVs

Google's long-rumored live TV service finally arrived earlier this year as 'YouTube TV.' Even from the start, it was a pretty solid offering, and Google has continued to add more channels and expand to more areas. But for a service called 'YouTube TV,' the lack of smart TV/Android TV applications was a major omission. To date, the only way to watch content on the big screen has been with a Chromecast.

That changes today, as YouTube has announced that applications for Android TV and Xbox One will be released within the next few days.

doubleTwist brings Android Airplay fix for AppleTVs running tvOS10.2

Just at the end of last month Apple broke some things in their 10.2 tvOS update, preventing third-party services from using Airplay on Apple TV. For Android users that might own an Apple TV that could have been a bit of a downer. Fret not, though. Much as doubleTwist was the first to bring AirPlay streaming to Android, they're one of the first to bring it back.
