Amazon and Google, are two big tech companies who are making some great products and services for their customers. But looks like both the companies are up for a fight. Google said that they would pull down YouTube from Amazon devices as they are not selling Google hardware on their e-commerce website.
Google said “Amazon doesn’t carry Google products like Chromecast and Google Home, doesn’t make (its) Prime Video available for Google Cast users, and last month stopped selling some of (our sister company) Nest’s latest products. Given this lack of reciprocity, we are no longer supporting YouTube on Echo Show and Fire TV.” Amazon Devices will lose access to YouTube starting 1st January 2018.
