Google pulls YouTube from Amazon Echo Show for ToS violations

Google pulls YouTube from Amazon Echo Show for ToS violations

When you try to access the service from the Echo Show, Amazon's built-in virtual assistant Alexa says, "Currently Google is not supporting YouTube on Echo Show".

There was no mention by either Amazon or Google at the time that YouTube's video experience was "broken".

Now there's the Echo for audiophiles, Look for fashionistas, Dot for cheapskates, Plus for Internet Of Things junkies, Show video chatty grandparents, Connect for home phone haters, and Spot for early risers (or those who wish they were). Amazon claims that Google's decision wasn't prompted by any technical reason, deeming it "disappointing" and stating that such a move hurts the customers of both companies.

"We've been in negotiations with Amazon for a long time, working towards an agreement that provides great experiences for customers on both platforms", a Google spokesperson said.

Amazon Music now comes with Alexa built-into it, which means searching for a song can be initiated just by voice commands.

The vagus nerve serves many roles in the anatomy: it controls the slowing of the heartbeat and the muscles of the small intestine. What this shows is that "brain plasticity and brain fix are still possible even when hope seems to have vanished", Sirigu added.

To start listening to music with Alexa wherever you go, simply update the Amazon Music app for iOS or Android. So why did YouTube get pulled? Amazon said Google had blocked YouTube on Echo Show "without explanation".

Not only do you need to make sure the product you're buying works with the smart assistant you use (be it Alexa or Google Assistant), but many products require a separate "hub" for relaying info back and forth on your network. Now with Amazon Music's Alexa Voice Controls, customers will be able to listen to music based on genre, tempo, activity and even lyrics if they are looking for a specific song but can't recall the name of it.

For the uninitiated, the Echo Show is Amazon's smart speaker that, unlike standard Echo devices, has a screen.

Relationships reached a low point in late 2015, when Amazon stopped swelling Google's Chromecast streaming device.

The upgraded device, called the Echo Plus, has better sound that older models and costs $150, down from the current $180 price, Amazon said at an event in Seattle on Wednesday.
