It’s taken a year and a half, but Google is now allowing YouTube to be used on Amazon Fire TV devices again. Presumably as part of the deal, Amazon Prime Video is also now launching support for Chromecast as well as Android TV devices. That move was promised earlier this year and has now happened.
Fans of YouTube will now be able to watch content on a range of devices, according to Amazon. This includes the second generation Fire TV Stick, Fire TV Stick 4K, Fire TV Cube, and Fire TV Stick Basic Edition. YouTube will now also be available on Toshiba, Insignia, Element, and Westinghouse Fire TV Edition sets, according to the announcement.
This new YouTube implementation is no workaround. Instead, it’s a full YouTube app experience, which means that it also includes support for Alexa. That, in turn, means voice control is on the table, something that is surprisingly handy once you get used to it.
If your particular brand of Fire TV device isn’t on the list, you can rest easy. Amazon has said that more Fire TV devices will be getting YouTube “in the coming Months” and that YouTube Kids and YouTube TV will also be arriving later this year.
However, it’s not all good news. So far, there’s been no talk of support coming to Amazon’s Echo Show – the device that started all of this and was excluded from the deal the two companies announced last year.
