Amazon removes youtube from Fire TV products

Amazon has just responded to Google’s decision to remove YouTube from all Fire TV products and the Echo Show. “Google is setting a disappointing precedent by selectively blocking customer access to an open website,” a spokesperson told The Verge by email. “We hope to resolve this with Google as soon as possible.” YouTube is being pulled from the Show effective immediately, and Fire TV owners will lose out on the popular, essential video streaming app on January 1st

Google says it’s taking this extreme step because of Amazon’s recent delisting of new Nest products (like Nest Secure and the E Thermostat) and the company’s long-running refusal to sell Chromecast or support Google Cast in any capacity.

But regardless of the public stance each company takes over the next few days, it’s their mutual customers who are unfairly getting jerked around. YouTube is a cornerstone of any living room streaming device, and for Google to suddenly decide to strip it from millions of existing Fire TV owners — a.ssuming no agreement is reached by January 1st — is shameful. YouTube is video on the internet. Period. It’s also home to beloved creators, and Google’s decision will soon rob them of viewers.
LOSING YOUTUBE WILL ALMOST CERTAINLY HAVE A NEGATIVE IMPACT ON FIRE TV SALES

Kicking the Echo Show to the curb doesn’t impact nearly as many people, but it still stings since watching cooking videos from YouTube on the Alexa screen in your kitchen seemed like one of the perfect uses for the thing! But since Google is being pedantic and needlessly obsessive over every detail of how the app functions on Amazon’s device, that’s no longer possible. This is the second time YouTube has disappeared from the Show. Google said the first iteration had a “broken user experience,” which resulted in a revised version that was basically the full-blown desktop website. That still wasn’t good enough, apparently. “Echo Show and Fire TV now display a standard web view of YouTube.com and point customers directly to YouTube’s existing website,” the Amazon spokesperson said.

Google is dealing Amazon’s devices real damage by withdrawing YouTube, and you could reasonably argue it has the upper hand here. There are people who simply won’t buy a Fire TV as a result of this move, and many existing owners will be displeased come January. Actually, they’re already rather upset since YouTube is displaying a cold, matter-of-fact warning about the cutoff starting today — and gently pushing users towards other devices. If you follow that link, there’s no explanation given as to why a device you paid money for will suddenly be made worse when the calendar hits 2018.

It should never have come to this. Amazon and Google, your options are to make this right, take your grievances to the FTC, or go to court. But don’t take it out on people who just want to enjoy their gadgets. Let people have their YouTube. 2017 has been hard enough to endure already.

The fact they will not sell chromecasts on the website but use android to run their fire tabs is hilarious to me. Google fired the first shot with pulling youtube lol

How did google fire the first shot when Amazon doesn’t sell Google products on their site? They don’t allow other platforms to use Prime Video?

That is because Amazon never gave a proper Prime video app, they just came out with one within the the last year. Before that they tried to get you to watch video using the regular amazon app on android. Not to mention Amazon had everyone downloading apps through their Amazon App store instead of through Google Play. I use products for both companies and dont pick sides, but Amazon started this IMO.

1. Means nothing. They should have designed sh*t to run on other platforms at the same time. They’re big enough for that.


2. It’s not as if this is their only fault/mistake... they purposely fu*k people like not selling Google products to sell their own... sh*t they even find the best selling products on their site and undercut their own sellers.
