AmazonFor the past couple of months it's been hard to find Amazon's Fire HD 10 tablet in stock and now we know why

Amazon and Google square off in many areas, from cloud computing and online search, to selling voice-controlled gadgets like the Echo Show.

Both Amazon and Google are now developing rival voice-controlled smart home speakers, which can act as a gateway to lucrative services. 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. Unlike the Google Home's feature, which used Google Voice (and thus, actual phone numbers), Amazon's solution required calling through the Alexa app or an Echo speaker. "As of this afternoon, Google has chosen to no longer make YouTube available on Echo Show, without explanation and without notification to customers".

If you ask the smart speaker to play a YouTube video, the Alexa just say, "Currently, Google is not supporting YouTube on Echo Show".

Alternatively, this might just be Google and Amazon fighting to keep its services exclusive. "YouTube is one of the big video services that they had in addition to their own". It will resolve these issues soon. That's one of the things the companies can't agree on. The Echo Show has a touchscreen and also responds to voice commands.
