Google has stopped the Amazon Echo show from showing YouTube videos. The feature had been available on the Echo Show from the start.
The change happened yesterday and Amazon has released a statement to The Verge about the removal of YouTube from its device. You can see the statement from Amazon below.
Google made a change today at around 3 pm. YouTube used to be available to our shared customers on Echo Show. As of this afternoon, Google has chosen to no longer make YouTube available on Echo Show, without explanation and without notification to customers. There is no technical reason for that decision, which is disappointing and hurts both of our customers.
The Verge also reach out to Google and they explained the reason that the deciced to pull YouTube from the Amazon Echo Show.
We’ve been in negotiations with Amazon for a long time, working towards an agreement that provides great experiences for customers on both platforms. Amazon’s implementation of YouTube on the Echo Show violates our terms of service, creating a broken user experience. We hope to be able to reach an agreement and resolve these issues soon.
As yet there are not details on when YouTube may return to the Echo Show, as soon as we get some more details, we will let you guys know.
