A YouTube (GOOG, GOOGL) spokesperson says the service will no longer be supported on Amazon’s (NASDAQ:AMZN) Echo Show and Fire TV due to a lack of reciprocity.
The spokesperson notes that Amazon doesn’t carry the Chromecast and Google Home or make Prime Video available on Chromecast. Amazon also pulled Nest products last month after YouTube initially pulled from the Show before its brief return.
Echo Show users will lose YouTube today while FireTV users have until the first of the year.
