It had then justified its removal claiming those might confuse and frustrate its customers as not all streaming devices provides the optimum Amazon experience as its own Prime Video service did on Fire TV. Adding to the announcement, Google also said that one huge part of the reason for removal was Amazon refusing to sell Chromecast dongles along with its Google Home speakers, and that Amazon Prime does not now support Chromecast.

"I can confirm that we are assorting Apple TV and Chromecast", an Amazon spokeswoman told CNET on Thursday, offering no further information.

Fire TV owners might not be losing YouTube after all.

"We are in productive discussions with Amazon to reach an agreement for the benefit of our mutual customers", a Google spokesperson said. At the time, Google publicly blamed the spat on Amazon refusing to sell Google devices on its store.
