Google to Pull YouTube from Amazon Echo Show, Fire TV

YouTube cracks down on disturbing videos of children

Amazon, the world's largest online retailer, does not stock Google products, including Google Chromecast, which competes with the Amazon Fire TV line, and Google Home, which competes with Amazon Echo. It wasn't until relatively recently at WWDC 2017 when Apple and Amazon belatedly said they had reached an agreement to develop a dedicated tvOS app for the Apple TV.

The move comes after YouTube vanished from Amazon's Echo Show device in September.

"We've been trying to reach agreement with Amazon to give consumers access to each other's products and services", Google said in a statement.

Google blocked YouTube access via the Echo Show, Amazon's smart speaker with a touchscreen, on Tuesday and will stop supporting YouTube on Amazon's Fire TV set-top box on January 1. They also both offer corporate cloud-computing services, a market where Amazon leads by a wide margin.

Amazon Prime Video app has been released on Apple TV on Wednesday, Dec. 6. Prime Video has been available for some time on iPhones and iPads, however it had never been available on any of Apple's streaming TV boxes. Google has already made its intentions clear by blocking YouTube access from the Amazon Echo Show which is now being sold in the U.S. and can be described as an Alexa equipped Echo speaker with a 7inch display.

Amazon Prime Video is available now on Apple TV for free. Then, last month, Amazon pulled Nest's latest devices, including its cheaper thermostat, from its online store.

Amazon issued a statement on Monday which read: "Echo Show and Fire TV now display a standard web view of YouTube.com and point customers directly to YouTube's existing website".

It said it hoped to resolve the issue with Google as soon as possible but customers could access YouTube through the internet - not an app - on the devices in the meantime.

Decent app for streaming or downloading Amazon Prime Video content to your smartphone.

Amazon Prime Video on Apple TV app also supports Universal Search.
