The conflict between Amazon and Google continues at the moment, as Google pulls out of the YouTube application again, from the Amazon Echo display operated by Alexa. This will be followed by eliminating the application of television fire in the near future.
As you may recall, Google was not very happy with the way Amazon initially applied to YouTube. It looks different and lacks many of the features that YouTube users expect. This enabled Google to access YouTube for owners of the Eco-Show devices earlier this fall.
However, two weeks ago, the YouTube application went back to EcoShow, a signal that seemed to indicate that everything was fine between companies.
It turns out that this is not the case.
In fact, Google does not even know that Amazon has recovered the application. Press has known her, according to sources close to Google’s development TechCrunch said.
Amazon apparently worked around the block when implementing the Web version on YouTube. This version was also built without Google login.
Although the original application lacks key YouTube features such as channel subscriptions, videos, comments and related participation, the new version of YouTube now superseded by the experience, according to Google’s violation of its terms. Of service.
But this controversy here is not just about YouTube. It’s a wider battle between the two companies that is also linked to Amazon’s recent decision to withdraw more Google products from its website, where they were previously available for sale.
Amazon has historically benefited from its dominant position in electronics to encourage its own trade products, such as television and Eco Fair – from similar items from competitors, such as Apple Kromacast and intelligent fulfill and Lin handset, for example. Today, Amazon does not have Google products like ChromeCast and the Google homepage, and it does not make the video available to Google users.
Screw yourself into the coffin, although it seems like Amazon’s decision last month to stop selling the latest Nest products as well.
This includes the removal of the Neste Thermostat E and Neste Camera and the NextCorrect Allarm System from the Amazon Store. Nestt did not give an explanation, but the moment of the elimination came shortly after YouTube withdrew from Echo Shu. A coincidence? I do not believe it
Previously, Amazon had even marketed niche devices such as “working with Alexa” and listed heat as one of the “Amazon Choice” selections. In other words, it was clear that the deletion was a coded message for Google to retract the application of the YouTube Terms of Service.
An eco work stop will be made See Uotob starting today, but television users will be diverted from a warning instead of the application disappearing on January 1, 2018. This is a sufficient time for them to make other arrangements (such time, more importantly, buy a different stream player?). Or maybe you can use Amazon’s new silk web browser to download the YouTube site on Fire TV: the trick you’re listening to should work at least for the time being.
The two companies have been negotiating for some time trying to reach an agreement that benefits their two clients, so it is not clear why they can not reach a reasonable compromise here.
After all, the end result is that they make both companies unhappy. Customers who end up living in a world do not choose between Amazon or Google, but can use products and services from both.
As hostility continues, Amazon users will not be able to see one of the most popular video services in the world on Amazon devices. At the same time, you will not be able to shop online buying some of the best-selling appliances and smart devices, such as Google home devices and Kromacast and NIST on the largest e-commerce site.
“We were trying to reach an agreement with Amazon to give consumers access to the products and services of others,” a Google spokesman told TechCrunch. “However, Amazon does not carry Google products such as Kromacast and Google home, does not make Braima video available for Google Dreamcast users, and was stopped last month by selling some of the latest NIST products. of reciprocity, YouTube is no longer allowed in Eco View and Veratv, and we hope we can reach an agreement to resolve these problems soon, “he said.
Amazon made the following comment when contacted:
Echo Show and Fair offers a standard web view for YouTube.com and directs customers directly to the current YouTube site. Google sets a disappointing precedent by preventing customers from selectively accessing an open website. I hope to solve this problem with Google as soon as possible.
