Google blocks YouTube access on Amazon Echo, Fire TV devices

  • Google blocks YouTube access on Amazon Echo, Fire TV devices

Google's statement pointed out that Amazon has refused to sell some of its own hardware devices, such as the Google Home speakers and Chromecast, and Amazon also does not support its Prime Video service for Google Cast devices. The Apple TV, as a prime example, is not available via Amazon. Perhaps Google is hoping that the threat of losing YouTube on its main streaming device will force Amazon to negotiate a truce both sides can live with before the new year. "We hope we can reach an agreement to resolve these issues".

Google on Tuesday said it will pull its YouTube service from the Amazon Echo Show and Fire TV. In September, Google pulled YouTube from the Amazon Echo Show and Amazon did not take it well.

Google and Amazon, of course, have an interesting relationship insofar that the Google products referenced above compete directly with offerings from Amazon. Then late last month, Amazon announced that YouTube was back for the Echo Show; its return was joined by a different user interface and some additional abilities missing from the original implementation. This was resolved in November for Echo Show users, when Amazon began forwarding people using that device to a stripped-down third-party app that leveraged the YouTube website, instead of a native app.

Would you buy an Android phone made specifically for YouTube? As of this afternoon, Google has chosen to no longer make YouTube available on Echo Show, without explanation and without notification to customers.

YouTube will be pulled from the Echo Show today. All things being equal, it stands to reason that the move will hurt Amazon a lot more than it will hurt Google. It was thought that Google and Amazon had worked out their differences, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

While YouTube is a key service on Echo Show, namely due to its huge number of recipe videos, Echo Show itself doesn't have the same level of popularity as Fire TV. Recently, Amazon also stopped allowing owners of Roku devices to download an official Twitch app (although current users can continue to access that app).
