Google Amazon Feud affects Customers

Google Starts Blocking YouTube on Fire TV, Echo Show Google is blocking YouTube on Amazon's Echo Show and Fire TV
Stacy Diaz | 07 December, 2017, 01:54

Both companies sell smart speakers that directly compete against each other. As you can imagine, Google likely wants to have YouTube on Amazon's services, since millions of people use them and Google is all about that reach. "We hope to be able to reach an agreement and resolve these issues soon". The feud was settled shortly after Amazon made the Echo Show present a more normal view of YouTube as per the video streaming service's terms and conditions. Those two features are autoplay and the ability to subscribe to channels. Users of the latter will begin to receive notifications of the move this week. The latter allows users to follow the YouTube channel belonging to a certain content provider on YouTube, whether it is a company or individual, and be alerted when there is a new video from that channel. Earlier this year, Google stopped supporting Amazon's Echo Show so Amazon developed a work-around. Google shares and Amazon shares both closed higher in Tuesday's United States trading session. However, Google removed the video streaming service again on December 5. But this was not an ideal situation since the web version didn't mesh well with the Echo Show's UI. "Similar reviews are also now hitting the Fire TV store page, with one reviewer saying, "[YouTube] was my main selling point, and I am furious that they are getting rid of it. It's already gone from the former and is due to disappear from the latter on 1 January 2018. Similarly, Amazon Prime Video doesn't support Google's Cast feature, making it hard to get video to a big screen for Android users.

In the online corporate jungle, the beasts don't come much bigger than Amazon and Google.

At issue is a perceived lack of "reciprocity" with Amazon failing to offer equal access to Google's products and services, prompting the dramatic rebuke. Since that hasn't happened and Amazon refuses to not only not sell Chromecast, Google Home, and some Nest products, they don't seem interested in adding Google Cast to Prime Video either, time is up.
