What am I talking about?
Parallely, both of Google's Chromecast devices, as well as partner TVs and hardware that support Chromecast built-in, or that run Android TV, will now support for Prime Video. Amazon's Prime Video is launching for the first time on Chromecast and Android TV, allowing Google users to view content from Prime Video on their devices.
Google raised the price of its YouTube TV streaming service in 2018.
Both services will be available starting today, according to the announcement post on Google's blog, and will be followed by closer collaboration in the future. It will appear on the Your Apps and Channels row on compatible devices worldwide, and all you need to do is select it, download it, sign in, and start using it. Later in the year, Fire TV will also enable support for YouTube TV and YouTube Kids.
As for Prime Video users, this truce between two of the biggest tech giants means that you'll now be able to stream originals like Fleabag and Good Omens from your phone to that massive Chromecast-enabled smart TV in your living room. Amazon might now sell Chromecast devices (at least, in the United States of America - like nearly everything else, searching for "Chromecast" on Amazon AU is a shitshow), but Home products are conspicuously absent. The app will automatically become available to all compatible Fire TV devices and once installed will offer full support for all YouTube content and functionality.
"With expanded Alexa voice controls, you can find, launch, and control your entertainment". Also, Chromecast Ultra users will get access to 4,000 titles included with Prime at no additional cost.
Likewise, Amazon still does not sell any of Google's smart speakers or screens although it does stock other Nest-branded devices.
