But now things have escalated and Google has blocked YouTube access on all Amazon Fire TV products as well as the company's Amazon Echo Show.
Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook had said in June that Amazon's streaming service would be available for Apple devices later this year. That includes Google's Chromecast streaming device, an alternative to Fire TV, and an internet-connected speaker called Home, which is trying to catch up to Amazon's market-leading Echo.

Amazon didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

They say Amazon is not playing fair with Google. One of the first signs that the companies were at odds came when Amazon redesigned Google's Android mobile software for its Kindle tablets. Amazon had explained the move by saying it wanted to avoid confusing customers who might expect its Prime Video service to be available on devices sold by Amazon.
