After more than a year of conflicts between Amazon and Google over their media products, the companies are finally playing well with each other. As Google promised earlier in April, YouTube is making a return on Amazon’s Fire TV devices.
Amazon today announced that the new official YouTube app is now available on Fire TV Stick (2nd Gen), Fire TV Stick 4K, Fire TV Cube, Fire TV Stick Basic Edition, and all Fire TV Edition smart TVs. The company plans to expand the YouTube app to more Fire TV devices in the coming months. Google will also be launching new apps for YouTube TV and YouTube Kids later this year. The new app allows you to view videos in 4K HDR @ 60fps on supported devices, and it even includes Alexa voice controls support.

Google is also returning the favour by bringing Amazon’s Prime Video to its own products. Amazon’s Prime Video is launching for the first time on Chromecast and Android TV, allowing Google users to view content from Prime Video on their devices.
