As per recent reports, both Amazon and Google have amicably ended their dispute, putting all their issues in the past, and have moved on. Both the companies in a recent press release statement have announced that in the coming few months, the two companies will be launching the official YouTube app on Amazon Fire TV devices and Fire TV Edition smart TVs, as well as the Prime Video app for streaming to Chromecast and Chromecast built-in devices. Apart from this, Prime Video will also be broadly available across Android TV device partners, and the YouTube TV and YouTube Kids apps will be coming to the Fire TV later this year.
“We are excited to work with Amazon to launch the official YouTube apps on Fire TV devices worldwide,” stated Heather Rivera, Global Head of Product Partnerships at YouTube. “Bringing our flagship YouTube experience to Amazon Fire TV gives our users even more ways to watch the videos and creators they love.”
“We’re excited to bring the Prime Video app to Chromecast and Android TV devices, and to give our customers convenient access to the shows and movies they love,” mentioned Andrew Bennett, Head of Worldwide Business Development for Prime Video. “Whether watching the latest season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, catching teams go head-to-head on Thursday Night Football or renting a new-release movie, customers will have even more ways to stream what they want, whenever they want, no matter where they are.”
