YouTube apps to be available on Amazon's Fire TV soon

Now, with this development, the eventual victor will be the end user as today's announcement would ensure that YouTube app returns to Fire TV helping them watch YouTube videos in up to 4K resolution with HDR. Part of that deal that is not getting a lot of attention is that it was also announced that Amazon has agreed to bring its Prime Video app to Android TV.

YouTube will return to Fire TV devices "in the coming months" according to Amazon. But that experience isn't the most user-friendly, so the real losers in this situation were YouTube lovers that owned Fire TV devices.

Up until now, Amazon and Google had prevented their respective video services from being available on each other's TV streaming platforms. It's expected that both services will be available on a wide range of streaming devices, including Roku, and most major smart TV platforms. Nearly two years after Google and Amazon kicked off a war of attrition, the two companies have finally reached an agreement.

The two companies have historically been rivals in several fields, including voice assistants, cloud technology, and, of course, video. And there's no YouTube app planned for Amazon's Fire tablets, as well, but those devices can already access YouTube through their browser. The free service can also be enjoyed on other Google -assistant powered speakers including JBL, Panasonic, Sony, and others.

Meanwhile, users will soon be able to cast Prime Video content from their mobile app to Chromecast and Chromecast enabled devices such as televisions and media players in 4K. Amazon also didn't include support for Google Cast in the Prime Video app, which made it essentially impossible to get Prime Video on bigger screens if you used Google products.

The details of the agreement are slim, however, Google likely was the one more lenient towards the agreement after Amazon started selling Chromecasts again on its website at the end of 2018.
