What you need to know
- Apple is working on a Music and Podcasts app for Microsoft platforms.
- It's currently unclear if it will be released on Windows computers or Xbox.
While the Apple TV app has only come to Xbox so far, as the outlet points out, it would make sense for the Music and Podcast app to come to Windows computers since iTunes, which was also made for Windows, was discontinued.
It only took a few months to go from the first signs of an Apple TV app on Xbox to it materializing on the game console.
The Apple TV app is mostly watched on televisions, so it makes sense that Apple focused in on Xbox as opposed to releasing the app for Windows computers. Although less known, Apple TV+ subscribers can also watch the service through the browser.
It is currently unknown when the apps may roll out to either platform.
