Amazon: Google Won’t Tell Us Why It Pulled YouTube From the Echo Show

Casey Newton, reporting for The Verge:

Google won’t tell Amazon why it blocked access to YouTube on its Echo Show device, Amazon’s senior vice president of devices and services said. Speaking to reporters at Amazon’s headquarters today, longtime Amazon exec Dave Limp said he would “send a team to Mountain View” tonight if Google would just specify what went wrong.

Interesting to me that the Google/Amazon cold war is escalating at the same time the Apple/Amazon cold war is de-escalating (with Apple TV 4K now on sale at Amazon, and Amazon Prime coming soon to Apple TV).
