As America's giant tech companies scramble to extend their reach ever further into our homes and wallets, the battle between Google and Amazon has taken a bitter turn.
"Google made a change today at around 3 pm". Two weeks ago, Amazon got YouTube back on the Echo Show by simply directing users to the web version, a workaround that left a lot to be desired. All things being equal, it stands to reason that the move will hurt Amazon a lot more than it will hurt Google.
In September, Google pulled YouTube from Amazon's Echo Show, the Seattle based firm's voice enabled artificial intelligence product that also features a screen. "Given this lack of reciprocity, we are no longer supporting YouTube on Echo Show and Fire TV", the spokesman said. The change for Echo Show takes place immediately, while YouTube is to come off Fire TV - which enables streaming of TV shows and movies - on January 1.
Now, with the feud with Google, Amazon is making its intentions known: the retail giant is making no bones about its future and plans that include a takeover of the consumer reatail space. While Amazon would benefit from YouTube access on its various streaming devices, Google likely wants Amazon to start selling its devices again.
