An Amazon spokeswoman said, " Google is setting a disappointing precedent by selectively blocking customer access to an open website". "We hope we can reach an agreement to resolve these issues soon", the world's largest internet search titan added. Unfortunately, it looks like that version of YouTube is about to disappear from the Echo Show, too. The video service will be pulled from the Echo Show today, while Fire TV owners will lose access to it on January 1, 2018.
Google has announced it will block YouTube from two Amazon devices and criticised its rival for not selling Google hardware.
A Google spokesman said in an emailed statement that the company has been trying to reach a reciprocal agreement with Amazon for products and services but has not done so. This could potentially affect Google's ad-revenue and limit the company's control over how people watch YouTube on the device.
These are two companies who usually have the upper hand on the negotiating table, and probably don't like the fact they have found their equal this time around. For example, Amazon does not sell Apple TV in its store, nor does it plan to sell Apple HomePod, Apple's smart speaker competitor to Amazon Echo. Google and Nest are separate firms both owned by corporate behemoth Alphabet.

Meanwhile, if you ask Alexa (Amazon's smart assistant) to order a Chromecast, she responds by first offering you an Amazon Fire TV stick, and then a Roku device.
Amazon made the decision to not sell Google devices in 2015, since the Chromecast didn't support Amazon Prime Video.
YouTube then returned to the Echo Show, but instead of being a fully fledged application, it was nothing more than the web version, which is optimized for a mouse and keyboard - not the Echo Show's voice-controlled interface.
The Chocolate Factory on Tuesday said it would be filing suit against the Bezos Bunch after it failed to cut a deal to allow its own streaming services to coexist with those of Amazon.
