You can now Chromecast from Amazon Video!

Amazon and Google have finally put down their weapons and have declared peace in their recent war that saw Amazon removing Google devices from their store and Google firing back by preventing YouTube and Chromecast from supporting Amazon platforms such as the Echo and Amazon Video.

The spat kicked off when Google withdrew support for Echo Show devices and the long running feud, which let's be honest was pretty anti-consumer, seemed to escalate as each side did something else to restrict the reach of their competitor.

They announced earlier this year that they would stop their bickering and the first signs of our new Amazon and Google as friends future is here with the news that you can now Chromecast from Amazon Video apps - meaning Google's smart dongle has another streaming feather in its cap. Similarly, Amazon Fire devices can now use the YouTube app again!

We haven't seen Google's devices return to the Amazon store yet, but we imagine it won't be long - although maybe not quite in time for some deep cutting Prime Day discounts.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
