The Disney+ iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and Apple Vision apps have all now been updated ahead of the official launch of Hulu on Disney+.

While select Hulu content has been available within the Disney+ app for some time now, the addition of Hulu is still considered to be in a beta phase. As Disney explained back in December, the plan was to officially launch Hulu on Disney+ in March 2024.

With March now drawing to a close, the end of Hulu’s beta phase is also drawing closer. The Disney+ iOS, iPadOS and Apple TV apps were all updated to version 3.1.0 yesterday (March 21) and reflect the inclusion of Hulu in more of an official capacity. For example, the App Store description now includes “And, stream the hottest shows, movies and originals from Hulu, now available on Disney+ for Disney Bundle subscribers.”

Along with the updated description, this update also sees the app icon changing to a new blue-green color, which is understood to be an attempt to represent the merging of Disney+ and Hulu content in the one app. This icon change also rolled out to other devices earlier this week, including LG smart TVs, Roku players and TVs, and Windows devices.

While all Apple device users can expect their apps to update in the same way, including the icon color change, only those that are signed up to a version of the Disney Bundle will be able to access the Hulu hub and related content in the Disney+ app.
