Google and Amazon bring the YouTube app back to Fire TV

YouTube on Amazon Fire TV

That lets you issue spoken commands like, "Alexa, watch music videos on YouTube" to open the app and immediately start playing the top result. A note for Chromecast users: You'll need the latest Prime Video app and Android 5.0 or higher (or iOS 10.1 or higher on your phone or tablet) to receive the update. Amazon says it'll expand YouTube app support to more Fire TV devices in the coming months, and we're hoping that also includes the noticeably absent Echo Show.

Around the same time, Amazon stopped selling a slew of Google-owned Nest devices on its online store.

Prime Video is already available on a select few Android TV devices, but access is rolling out to all other Android TV systems today.

The two have since spent the last few months working to patch things up and bring their services back to users on both platforms.

Currently, the official YouTube app is available worldwide on Fire TV Stick (second generation), Fire TV Stick 4K, Fire TV Cube, Fire TV Stick Basic Edition, and Toshiba, Insignia, Element, and Westinghouse Fire TV Edition smart TVs. As Google promised earlier in April, YouTube is making a return on Amazon's Fire TV devices.

Additional support for YouTube TV and YouTube Kids is planned for launch later this year.

Additionally, the Prime Video app for Android TV is spreading beyond the devices where it's now available and should be ready to install on all sorts of Android TV set-top boxes, streaming sticks, and TVs.

"The all-new YouTube app will appear in the "Your Apps and Channels" row on all compatible devices", Amazon explains in a company blog post today.
