10 July 2019 0

It’s official now that Google and Amazon are coming together as they worked through their differences so as to bring better solutions and accessibility to the users. The long term friction between Google and Amazon over their streaming video services has finally reached its end. Google has now made it official that Amazon’s Prime Video can now be accessed via Chromecast and Android TV and its YouTube app has now come to Amazon’s Fire TV.

To be precise, Amazon’s second-generation Fire TV Stick, their Fire TV Stick 4K, the Fire TV Cube, Fire TV Stick Basic Edition, and Fire TV Edition smart TVs made by partner OEMs will all get the support for the official YouTube app globally. You will need the latest Prime Video app and Android 5.0 or higher or iOS 10.1 or higher on your phone or tablet to receive the update.

Also, Android TV devices that currently have Prime Video and many other Android TV smart TVs, set-top boxes and streaming devices will also soon have Prime Video; rollout has already begun. With YouTube app on your Fire TV devices you will be able to access music videos, your favorite creators, movies, shows, news, and more.

While announcing the new supports, Google touts that with Amazon Prime Video on Chromecast and Android TV, you can watch Amazon Originals like “Fleabag” and “Guave Island” on your existing device. It also explains that Chromecast users have access to over 2,000 apps for content and games.

Additional device support will roll out in the coming months, and YouTube TV and YouTube Kids will launch later this year.
