Google pulls YouTube from Amazon Echo Show, Fire TV

Google drops YouTube from Amazon's Fire TV, Echo Show

The search giant recently pulled the YouTube app Amazon's Fire TV and Echo Show after it was revealed that Amazon was unwilling to sell certain Google products.

"We've been trying to reach an agreement with Amazon to give consumers access to each other's products and services". Amazon later reintroduced YouTube to the device, but the voice commands it added violated the use terms and on Tuesday Google again removed the service. Google has also been planning to withdraw its the support for its video-sharing platform on Amazon's streaming devices. 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. "We hope we can reach an agreement to resolve these issues soon". They also both offer corporate cloud-computing services, a market where Amazon leads by a wide margin.

The Prime Video app for the Apple TV supports numerous Apple TV features, this included Siri and the TV app, this allows you to search for videos on Prime from the main TV interface.

Amazon Prime Video app has been released on Apple TV on Wednesday, Dec. 6. 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.

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