The War Is Over: Google and Amazon are officially friends again

We knew it was coming, but Google and Amazon are officially friends again.

Starting from today, Chromecast and Android TV users will be able to access Amazon Prime Video, while Amazon Fire TV devices — including set-top boxes, sticks, and smart TVs — will receive the official YouTube app. Support for the separate YouTube TV and YouTube Kids apps will land on Amazon devices later in the year.

The big feud
By way of a quick recap, Amazon and Google’s feud has spilled into the public domain on numerous occasions over the past few years. Amazon kicked Chromecast off its retail website in 2015, alongside Apple TV, apparently because these devices competed with Amazon’s Fire TV and neither supported Amazon’s Prime TV streaming service. Amazon and Apple did manage to kiss and make up back in 2017, however.

In December, Amazon started selling Chromecast again, apparently laying the foundation for the official April announcement, which confirmed that the duo’s respective services would soon be made available on each other’s platforms.

As is often the case when competing companies lock horns, it’s the customer that gets caught in the crossfire. It has been possible to watch YouTube on some Amazon Fire TV devices through side-loading the app or accessing it through a browser, but it wasn’t an ideal scenario. And while many modern smart TVs already have the standalone Prime TV app, not everyone has a smart TV. This meant some viewers had to buy two devices, such as an Amazon Fire TV Stick and a Chromecast, to ensure they could access all their content on their big screen.

Way more people use YouTube than Amazon Prime. Amazon had to know they were going to end up on the wrong end of this.

You can't compare YouTube to Amazon Prime. One is a free, the other is a paid service. Regardless, YouTube has been available on Fire TV devices since the beginning of this spat, so YouTube wasn't an issue.

The problem Amazon had is that Google was trying to take a 30% cut of Amazon Prime subscriptions and rentals. Amazon wasn't having it and rightfully so.

The real winners are in this are Prime Video users that own a Chromecast or Android TV device.

little to late for me, it would have been nice to use Youtube TV on my prime stick months ago when Youtube tv was a fair 35 a month price, but since YT jacked the price up to 50 a month i been quit that.
