Echo Show loses YouTube support, Fire TV will soon follow

In a statement on the matter, Google accused Amazon of refusing to sell certain Google branded products.
Amazon and Google are at odds after the Silicon Valley search giant pulled YouTube off Amazon's TV streaming service. A spokesperson for Google toldEngadget, "We've been trying to reach agreement with Amazon to give consumers access to each other's products and services, But Amazon doesn't carry Google products like Chromecast and Google Home, doesn't make Prime Video available for Google Cast users, and last month stopped selling some of Nest's latest products".
Aaron Boone Named New Yankees Manager
Friday night, Bill Madden of the Daily News was the first to report that Aaron Boone is now the 35th manager in club history. Of the six candidates, only Boone and the newly retired Beltran had no previous coaching or managerial experience.
Amazon, in what appeared to be an act of retaliation, pulled Nest devices from its online store. In November, Amazon managed to add YouTube support back onto the Echo Show, but that it was a more basic web-based interface.
The inability to access YouTube from an otherwise capable streaming device is undoubtedly a huge drawback for Echo Show and Fire TV owners.
Google and Amazon have been in discussions for a long time to try and have a more mutually beneficial relationship, but it sounds like it hasn't been going well. Unfortunately, it looks like that version of YouTube is about to disappear from the Echo Show, too.
YouTube will be off Amazon's devices starting January 1, meaning consumers in the market for a streaming gadget over the holidays may instead choose one from Roku, Apple or Google. Google also left the Fire TV off the list of streaming players to be supported by YouTube TV in what is likely a continuation of their fight with Amazon. Whether or not things get resolved by the end of the year remains to be seen, though.
