Google Blocks YouTube Access From Amazon's Streaming Devices
06 December, 2017, 00:16 | Author: Sammy Rose
It's a continuation of the feud which started earlier this autumn over Amazon's alleged poor implementation of the app, which Google said was "creating a broken user experience".
Google has once again blocked YouTube from running on the Amazon Echo Show, as well as the firm's Fire TV devices. Our source says that Google would like to have more of its hardware products like Chromecast and Google Home available through Amazon, but the company has long avoided selling products that compete with its own hardware initiatives - that's why you can't get an Apple TV on Amazon, for example.
While it would definitely be better for consumers if Google and Amazon worked together, it looks like it won't happen anytime soon. That includes Google's Chromecast streaming device, an alternative to Fire TV, and an internet-connected speaker called Home, which is trying to catch up to Amazon's market-leading Echo. Then, last month, Amazon pulled Nest's latest devices, including its cheaper thermostat, from its online store.
YouTube will be off Amazon's devices starting January 1, meaning consumers in the market for a streaming gadget over the holidays may instead choose one from Roku, Apple or Google.

Google and Amazon have been in discussions for a long time to try and have a more mutually beneficial relationship, but it sounds like it hasn't been going well.
The inability to access YouTube from an otherwise capable streaming device is undoubtedly a huge drawback for Echo Show and Fire TV owners.
Google has for some time offered limited versions of the YouTube app on the Fire TV. In November, Amazon managed to add YouTube support back onto the Echo Show, but that it was a more basic web-based interface.
"We hope we can reach an agreement to resolve these issues soon", the Google spokesperson said. Apple announced that it would be launching a version of the Amazon Prime Video app for Apple TV. Whether Amazon will buckle under the threat of lost support and cave in remains to be seen, though.
