Google Pulls the Plug on YouTube Even Earlier
« on: December 28, 2017, 01:14:29 PM »
Even though Google has already removed YouTube from the Echo Show to punish Amazon for not selling Google hardware like their Chromecast streamer, or Google Home which is a smart speaker that competes with Amazon Alexa devices.

To add insult to injury, when you search for Chromecast it brings up Fire TV devices in the search results. Try it here. The same thing happens when you search for Google Home you get results with Amazon Echo devices. Try it here.

Google was not going to remove their YouTube app from Fire TVs and Fire TV Sticks until Jan. 1. Looks like they decided to remove it even earlier.

Today Fire TV and Stick owners were greeted with an error message when they tried to use the super popular YouTube app which told them to install either the Silk or Firefox web browser. This is the current work around and it lets them still access YouTube from a web browser rather than from the app directly.

At this point no one knows how far this little tiff will go. Will Google remove all Amazon listings from their search results? Or will Amazon come up with a YouTube app of their owned which has already been talked about. More details about this are here

It's not often we see two tech giants duke it out the way these two have. But in this case, it will be Fire TV and Fire Stick owners that will be inconvenienced the most because YouTube continues to be one of the most popular Streaming TV apps.

There are still better media streamer options out there which are unaffected and work perfectly fine with YouTube like Roku and Nvidia Shield. These are both much better streaming platforms and Fire TV owners would probably be happier using these anyways.

Who are you rooting for in the battle of the giants, Amazon or Google? Grab your popcorn, 2018 could be an interesting year as this battle heats up...
