Google To Yank YouTube From Amazon Devices
« on: December 05, 2017, 10:07:42 PM »
In a rare public catfight between two tech monsters, Google and Amazon's latest spat may have far reaching consequences.

Google today announced they are removing their YouTube app from Amazon Devices like the Fire TV and Echo Show beginning Jan 1. This will leave millions of Amazon customers without access to their favorite app.

Apparently this has been a fight that has been simmering a while now between these two tech giants. Amazon and Google are both competing for the smart AI voice market. Amazon is winning this race partially because they have eliminated sales of some Google devices like Chromecast, and their Google Home automation hub from their online store.

Today Google retaliated and by removing their popular YouTube app, which can still be found on media streamers like Roku and Apple TV. It is hitting Amazon where it hurts with customer satisfaction and could very well result in a loss of marketshare for the company.

Amazon has been promoting their Fire and Alexa devices very heavily. With Google eliminating their extremely popular YouTube app and forcing customers to access YouTube from a web browser which is the workaround touted by Amazon, if could very well leave shoppers looking elsewhere when it comes to buying a new media streamer this holiday.

They may still kiss and make up the way Amazon and Apple did earlier this year. Rumors have been circulating that there will soon be an Amazon Video app on the Apple TV. You still can't buy an Apple TV on Amazon yet, so this may still not be fully resolved either.

One thing's for sure, you can't go wrong with a Roku or Nvidia SHIELD. Both have their own YouTube app and are sold on Amazon.
