YouTube app will soon return to Amazon Fire TV devices

Amazon Google

A spokesperson from Google told Engadget that the "main YouTube app is coming first, but YouTube TV and YouTube Kids will follow afterwards".

The agreement also enables Amazon Prime members streaming to Chromecast or using Android TV devices to access Amazon's video content. Apps for YouTube TV and YouTube Kids will be available on Amazon's streaming media devices "later this year". Further, the Prime Video app will officially start supporting Chromecast and Chromecast built-in devices for streaming. Google pulled the video streaming app in early 2018 after it could not strike a deal with the online retail giant surrounding the availability of its products and services.

YouTube users watching on Fire TV will be able to sign in to their accounts, access their full libraries, and watch videos in glorious 4K HDR at 60 fps on compatible devices. The free service can also be enjoyed on other Google -assistant powered speakers including JBL, Panasonic, Sony, and others.

Without the YouTube native app, Amazon Fire TV Stick was accessing it through its browser that surprisingly worked fine.

We all remember the fight that unfolded between Google and Amazon - nearly two years ago - resulted in the former withdrawing its app from Amazon Fire TV Stick and Echo Show.

This strategy is in line with Amazon's own announcement that a free version of its Amazon Music is available to Echo smart speaker owners, with the caveat that Amazon's offer only applies to the States for the moment. For Prime Video on Chromecast and Android TV, we're looking at availability "in the coming months". The two companies have been fiercely competitive in terms of gatekeeping proprietary services.

Google's mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful. This is good news for customers as the YouTube app will return to Fire TV, while Prime Video will support Chromecast going forward.

The dispute between Amazon and Google has taken several turns over the years, and has seen Amazon refuse to carry certain Google devices like Chromecasts on its virtual store shelves.
