Amazon is rising after announcing tons of new hardware

Both the Mountain View search giant and the Seattle e-commerce behemoth agree that YouTube is no longer available on Amazon's "Echo Show," a virtual-assistant device with a screen.

"Google made a change today at around 3 pm", the company said. At $20, the Echo Buttons aren't necessarily as much of a major release, but the game show-like add-ons can be used to play trivia games and other apps with an Echo via Alexa.

In a rare public feud between large technology companies, Amazon.com Inc said on Tuesday its Echo Show devices could no longer play videos from YouTube because the site's parent, Google, stopped supporting the service.

Florida defeats Tennessee on 63-yard Hail Mary
Facing second-and-14 at their own 31-yard line with four minutes remaining and nursing a 20-17 lead, Franks dropped back to pass. Regardless of the coverage call, however, the most basic defensive rule is you have to play as deep as the deepest receiver.

But it's also no secret that Google is pushing its Google Home smart speaker as a major competitor to Amazon Echo devices. Apparently Google is blocking YouTube from working on Amazon's smart speaker. You can use the voice assistant for typical Alexa tasks like the news or smart home control, as well as driving-oriented features like navigation or finding businesses. However, Google claims it has been in negotiations with Amazon on an agreement that will ensure customers have "great experiences" while using YouTube. These will be available in the United States for $35 by the end of the year, and Amazon plans to launch them in the UK early next year.

Amazon also showed off a new Fire TV device capable of streaming ultra-high definition 4K video from the internet to televisions. It would also likely compete against the new-and-improved Amazon Echo announced this week. Amazon is seemingly upset about it because they feel there isn't a technical reason as to why Google did this, and that they did so without an explanation to Amazon or a notification to their customers.

The news follows growing tension between Google and Amazon. Google's Google Home speaker costs $130, though Apple's upcoming smart speaker, HomePod, has not even hit the market yet. Google did not specify what exactly was broken about the user experience.
