Good news for Amazon Fire TV users, with the news that YouTube is finally returning to the product. Amazon Prime Video will also be going the other way, with support for Chromecast being added while also becoming more widely available for those who use Android TV.
This news comes after both YouTube and Amazon made a joint announcement about it. YouTube was pulled from the Fire TV platform over a year ago, but the two companies say that it will return “later this year.” YouTube proper will be the first out of the gate, followed by YouTube TV.
As part of the deal, Amazon will be allowing Chromecast users to use the Prime Video mobile app to get content onto their big screen TVs. Prime Video will also be making the move to Android TV as a whaler other than the limited devices that have been able to use it to date.
One interesting thing of note here is that there has been no mention of YouTube returning to the Echo Show, a device that also lost the app when it was pulled from the Fire TV. That’s bad news for users of that particular smart device, although sources told The Verge that both Amazon and YouTube continue to speak about the app, so there’s hope that YouTube will return to Echo Show at some point.
Meanwhile, Echo Show users can resort to using a web browser for their YouTube viewing pleasure.
In the meantime, there is a way you can stream YouTube videos on both the Echo Show and Fire TV using the method described in our guide: Here’s A Way Around YouTube Being Blocked On Amazon Fire TV, Echo Show.
