For now, select Android TV devices have access to Prime Video, accessible by clicking the app icon directly from the home screen or in Google Play. So, it steered people toward Fire TVs. Amazon might now sell Chromecast devices (at least, in the US - like nearly everything else, searching for "Chromecast" on Amazon AU is a shitshow), but Home products are conspicuously absent.

"The all-new YouTube app will appear in the "Your Apps and Channels" row on all compatible devices", Amazon explains in a company blog post today. After announcing that their various video offerings would soon work everywhere, this morning Google and Amazon starting rolling out Prime Video and YouTube to places they hadn't previously been. That was, apparently, enough to get Amazon to the negotiating table.

After Amazon and Google buried the hatchet earlier this spring in their multiyear streaming-video spat, the companies have now made their devices and services work together.

Now, it all comes to fruition. The app is said to support Amazon's voice assistant, Alexa, and can also be downloaded from the platform's store, Amazon Appstore. It has full Alexa voice control integration and 4K HDR streaming.

Amazon revealed that YouTube would be supported by Fire TV Stick (2nd Gen), Fire TV Stick 4K, Fire TV Cube, Fire TV Stick Basic Edition, and all Fire TV Edition smart TVs. More device support will come later. Then, Google took things a step further by blocking YouTube from functioning on both the Echo Show and Fire TV devices. With the new version, you can connect to Chromecast targets on your network and beam video straight to them. You'll 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.

Google raised the price of its YouTube TV streaming service in 2018.
