Feud Continues As Google Pulls Out You Tube From Amazon Gadgets
Fire TV owners, I hope you don't enjoy watching much YouTube, because the app is about to disappear from your device. In a statement, a Google representative said it's taking the action because the YouTube apps on Amazon products aren't made by Google, like the YouTube app on the iPhone is, and the retail giant doesn't sell some Google products, such as Chromecast and Google Home.
Google has chose to block YouTube on multiple Amazon media devices, part of an escalating feud between the two tech companies.
Both companies should reach at an agreement and resolve these issues to avoid inconvenience to consumers.
In a row that has simmered over the past two years between Google and Amazon, tempers appear to have flared in the latest spat between the two global tech giants.
It added that Amazon has stopped selling some products from Nest, a connected-device maker that is Google's sister firm under Alphabet.

A Google spokesperson said: "We've been trying to reach agreement with Amazon to give consumers access to each other's products and services".
Amazon's Fire TV products run on the company's Fire OS, which is in turn a modification of Google's open-source Android platform. For example, Amazon does not sell Apple TV in its store, nor does it plan to sell Apple HomePod, Apple's smart speaker competitor to Amazon Echo.
KitGuru Says: This isn't the first time that two or more companies have very publicly disputed the other, with customers essentially losing out, and unfortunately it isn't likely to be the last either. However, Amazon probably isn't all that excited about Google competing with them in hardware on their own store, though I'd imagine Amazon's customers aren't going to be happy if YouTube isn't a part of their shiny new device's ecosystem.
The Amazon response was blunt.
YouTube then returned to the Echo Show, but instead of being a fully fledged application, it was nothing more than the web version, which is optimized for a mouse and keyboard - not the Echo Show's voice-controlled interface.
