"We've been trying to reach agreement with Amazon to give consumers access to each other's products and services", Google said in a statement.

A bust-up between Google and Amazon will mean that Amazon Fire and Amazon Echo Show users will be unable to watch YouTube on their TV - via their Amazon devices - from 1 January 2018.

A tit-for-tat move, as Amazon refuses to sell many of Google's products that compete with its own products on its retail website.

"We hope we can reach an agreement to resolve these issues soon", says Google. In the past few years, both have introduced multiple new home devices, including speakers and home-security products.

But where it gets odder is that Amazon sells Roku and Apple TV devices which makes me think this beef runs a lot deeper than either party is letting on. Then, last month, Amazon pulled Nest's latest devices, including its cheaper thermostat, from its online store.

Decent app for streaming or downloading Amazon Prime Video content to your smartphone. Currently, Apple's original content consists of shows such as Carpool Karaoke and the inane reality TV competition Planet of the Apps, which pales in comparison to the kind of award-winning programming Netflix and Amazon have been developing, such as Stranger Things and Transparent.

Amazon Prime Video on Apple TV app also supports Universal Search.
