You can now download Prime Video app on Chromecast and Android TV

Notably, Amazon and Google in a joint statement back in April announced the debut of the YouTube and Amazon Prime Video apps on each other's streaming devices.

The ability to watch Amazon Prime Video on Chromecasts and Android TV devices is also rolling out today.

Unfortunately, Echo Show owners are still out of luck - Google's feud with Amazon hasn't fully ended yet, it seems, which means no YouTube app on the device for now. In other words, you can stick to a single device ecosystem without having to jump through hoops to enjoy the shows you like.


Unfortunately, YouTube TV and YouTube Kids are not part of today's cross-platform party. The app supports up to 4K HDR video at 60fps and is compatible with Alexa, so you can search, start playing, and control playback with voice commands.

About a year and a half after their spat, YouTube will be available on Amazon's Fire TV devices while Amazon Prime Video will be available on Google's Chromecast and Android TV devices from July 9.

Google raised the price of its YouTube TV streaming service in 2018.


The all-new YouTube app will appear in the "Your Apps and Channels" row on all compatible devices.

Phones or tablets streaming Prime Video to Chromecast will need to be running versions higher than Android 5.0 or higher than iOS 10.1 to receive this latest update. I noticed the cast button became available on my Amazon Prime Video iPad app yesterday evening, and this morning a similar update arrived on my Android phone - so it is good to see that this update has arrived in the United Kingdom, on both major mobile platforms so quickly. And so it was becoming increasingly risky for Google to not have Prime Video available on the Chromecast.

Google had pulled out YouTube from Amazon's Fire TV in 2017 after the ecommerce giant stopped selling some of its products.
