Ah, the love between Amazon and Google shows itself once more…. NOT! It appears that the latest spat between the two giants is over YouTube and the newish Amazon Echo Show.
Users of the new Alexa-powered smart device were cut off from YouTube yesterday with a warning that the smart speaker was unable to play content from the world’s largest video site. Amazon states that they are disappointed, laying the blame at the feet of Google. Google, in return, indicates that the reason for the shutdown is due to a violation of the terms of service and that they made Amazon aware that Tuesday was the drop date.
