Google and Amazon dispute has now led to the both companies removing access to their products.
There is no real explanation why Google and Amazon are denying each other access, Google has hinted that Amazon made changes to their software and the way it worked on the Echo Show platform and device.
Furthermore Amazon has pulled Google’s Chromecast and Google Home from Amazon’s shopping website, and Amazon doesn’t allow Googlecast users accessing Amazon’s Prime Video, which has added more fuel to the fire.
In another twist Amazon has pulled Nest products, which shows Amazon behaving in a protective manner, that could lead to government intervention on anti-competitive and monopoly charges.
Amazon has made this statement regarding this problem between them and Google, "Echo Show and Fire TV now display a standard web view of YouTube.com and point customers directly to YouTube's existing website. Google is setting a disappointing precedent by selectively blocking customer access to an open website. We hope to resolve this with Google as soon as possible."
What is interesting to note is even though Google is a massive corporation, having Google’s products and YouTube being denied access to Amazon’s Echo Show and Fire TV, it will hurt sales and views.
Not only is this dispute is confusing industry insiders but more importantly the consumers who enjoy the products and services both Amazon and Google offer.
“Amazon is behaving in ananti-competitive manner, which will hurt them in the future!”
