Google v Amazon: YouTube app pulled from Fire TV and Echo Show

Google is using YouTube as leverage over Amazon to try and force the world’s largest retailer to sell its Home smart speakers, Chromecasts and Nest products.

Google has pulled official support for YouTube from Amazon’s Echo Show and Fire TV devices, meaning that owners can no longer access the video site through a YouTube app.

The quarrel originally became public in September when Google pulled YouTube access from the new Echo Show for “violating terms of service” saying that Amazon’s implementation of YouTube blocked what Google considered critical features.

Now it appears to revolve around Amazon’s unwillingness to sell certain Google products.

Amazon and Google have been battling it out over app sales ever since Amazon released the Kindle Fire and locked it down to prevent Google apps and services from running on it without rooting the device. It is understandable that Amazon sells the Fire and Alexa devices to promote it's own content and I doubt that this will change. I don't see Apple working well with Google either so just pick your poison or none at all.
In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.

firetv can run normal android apps so you could go to the google play store and download the youtube app there

it may be possible to find the app elsewhere and side load it
