  • Amazon Video finally comes to Apple TV

If you have an Apple TV or similar device, you can use the iOS app to stream content directly to your TV, whilst we wait for the native Apple TV Prime Video app.

Amazon launched its Prime Video app Tuesday on Apple TV and Apple TV 4K.

Google blocked YouTube access via the Echo Show, Amazon's smart speaker with a touchscreen, on Tuesday and will stop supporting YouTube on Amazon's Fire TV set-top box on January 1.

Yesterday, Forbes reporter John Archer wrote about Amazon's new Prime Video app for the Apple TV.

Nevertheless, the inclusion of Amazon Prime Video app in Apple TV will help strengthen ties between the two tech giants.

This news will likely end a long-standing feud between Apple and Amazon, two companies that have more money than you will ever see in your life, so you probably shouldn't worry too much about their feuds. Google is miffed by the fact that it is losing ad revenue from Fire TV which was the best selling streaming device in U.S. and India.

Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook had said in June that Amazon's streaming service would be available for Apple devices later this year.

In a report by Engadget, Google announces that it is totally disabling YouTube access for users of both the Echo Show and Amazon's Fire TV devices.

The stakes are high: many in the technology industry expect that interacting with computers by voice will become widespread, and it is unclear if Amazon, Google or another company will dominate the space.

The restriction means that Amazon's Echo Show and its Fire TV can only access YouTube through its existing website, not through the app. While Google's stock price has grown 198% since December 2012, Amazon's has soared 352.6% in the same period.

In fact, people who are committed to the Amazon ecosystem pretty much won't be able to watch anything at all on YouTube - at least for the time being.

On the search front, any web searches that go through Siri get handled by Google, which also serves as the default search engine on iPhones and iPads. Apple has also stayed out of the cloud computing business entirely, allowing Google, Amazon, and Microsoft to offer their own cloud services to app developers. Google blamed a "lack of reciprocity" on Amazon's part for the decision.
