How to Play Apple Music on Android TV
Android TV is different from Apple TV, which is a version of the Android operating system designed for digital media players.
As a replacement for Google TV, Android TV features a user interface designed around content discovery and voice search, surfacing content aggregated from various media apps and services, and integration with other recent Google technologies such as Assistant, Cast, and Knowledge Graph.
