Google has banned YouTube from Amazon devices, like Fire TV. What happens to you now and what you need to do.
Google will remove YouTube on 01.01.2018 from all Amazon devices, like Fire TV or the Fire TV Stick. It’ll be also removed on the new Amazon Echo Show, a smart speaker with a display.
Why is that?
Google said that Amazon doesn’t sell any Google Chromecast or Google Home devices on their platform. And also Amazon Prime Video isn’t available on Google Cast. That’s the main reason.
What you have to do?
The only thing you can do is to wait and hope that Amazon sells Google devices and for Google to bring YouTube back. Till then you shouldn’t buy any Fire TV or Fire TV Stick.
