Amazon and Google are Friends for Now

Amazon Google

The free, ad-supported YouTube Music on Google-powered smart speakers is available in the UK, US, Canada, Mexico, Australia, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Japan, Netherlands, and Austria. This came after Google also revoked YouTube access on Amazon's Echo Show devices, citing a "broken user experience".

Amazon and Google are ending their almost 2-year spat, agreeing to bring their video streaming apps to each others devices.

Reaching a detente might help Amazon and Google continue to grow their user bases and fend off smaller rivals.

In the time since YouTube left Fire TVs, users have been able to access the site using browsers.

For example, Amazon's Prime Video has always been hard to find on Android devices. After YouTube, Amazon will get Google's YouTube TV streaming broadcast TV service.

Similarly, Amazon's Prime Video will also support Chromecast devices and Android TV products.

Now, those users will soon have an official YouTube app sanctioned by Google on their streaming devices again.

Upgrading to the ad-free, £9.99/month YouTube Music Premium allows "background play" music through the YouTube Music app while using other apps, and offline listening. Customer reviews, 1-Click shopping, personalized recommendations, Prime, Fulfillment by Amazon, AWS, Kindle Direct Publishing, Kindle, Fire tablets, Fire TV, Amazon Echo, and Alexa are some of the products and services pioneered by Amazon.

Inc. (AMZN.O) is hoping an ad-supported music-streaming service will help it sell more speakers and other devices that work with its voice-activated Alexa platform.
