YouTube is available on the Amazon Echo Show once again

The first image below with the Tour de France videos shows the original YouTube interface that caused the rift. With Echo Buttons, which are connected to the Echo, Echo Plus, Echo Dot, or Echo Show smart speakers from Amazon, consumers will be able to activate and trigger various games through the use of the smart speaker that the buttons are linked to. The implementation violated YouTube's terms of service.

As expected Amazon has this week started taking preorders for their new Echo Buttons, which can be used in connection with your Amazon Alexa personal assistant, to enjoy games and entertainment with your friends or family.


UKRD Group has launched a locally focussed news service specifically designed for Amazon's Echo, and Alexa enabled Fire Tablet and Fire TV devices.

The rift between Google and Amazon widened when former suddenly stopped allowing YouTube to work on the Echo Show.


Photos provided by the site show a YouTube app that looks much better than it once did, now mimicking what you might find on the desktop versus a generic "mobile" experience. Amazon was also not happy about how Google suddenly stopped supporting Echo Show without intimation. A pack of two Amazon Echo Buttons will set you back $20 and start shipping out to customers on December 19th, 2017 throughout the USA, just in time for the holiday season. This is great news for existing Echo Show owners and those that might be eyeballing one for the holidays. The web UI of the app is in compliance with Google's requirement regarding terms of service.
