Google to Pull YouTube from Amazon Echo Show, Fire TV

"But Amazon doesn't carry Google products like Chromecast and Google Home, doesn't make Prime Video available for Google Cast users, and last month stopped selling some of Nest's latest products". In a statement, a Google representative said it's taking the action because the YouTube apps on Amazon products aren't made by Google, like the YouTube app on the iPhone is, and the retail giant doesn't sell some Google products, such as Chromecast and Google Home.
The move comes after Google failed to reach an agreement with Amazon to provide support for the latter's services on the electronics and cloud computing company's products and services. "We hope we can reach an agreement to resolve these issues soon".
Amazon and Google's tit for tat relationship has taken to new heights after Google announced on 6 December 2017 that it will be restricting YouTube access on Amazon products. Both have also been pushing their own video and music-streaming services as well as competing video-control platforms. Offering access to thousands of the latest movies and TV programmes, you can stream content on demand or, find Prime offers to enable you to buy and keep your favourite shows.
"There is nothing that excites us more than delighting our customers, and we are thrilled for them to stream Prime Video on Apple TV", said Mark Eamer, VP of Amazon Prime Video.

The Prime Video app will be available on Apple TV 4K and previous generations of Apple TV, giving Prime Video members with Apple TV devices access to Amazon's content line-up.
In September, Google cut off YouTube from the Amazon Echo Show, which had displayed videos on its touchscreen without video recommendations, channel subscriptions and other features. "Google is setting a disappointing precedent by selectively blocking customer access to an open website".
