Amazon's New Apple TV App May Have a Major Sound Issue

Amazon's New Apple TV App May Have a Major Sound Issue

We knew it was coming and now Amazon has officially started rolling out its Prime Video app to the Apple TV 4K, as well as older models of Apple TV, in more than 100 countries.

Ever since its first iteration, one of the Apple TV's major weaknesses has been its lack of an Amazon Video app. Apple listened to customer complaints, and promised way back in September that the service would make its way to the premium streaming box in question.

The Prime Video app for the Apple TV supports numerous Apple TV features, this included Siri and the TV app, this allows you to search for videos on Prime from the main TV interface. And while all streaming devices offer more than just video, Apple TV goes much further in offering an iPhone-like experience on a big screen.

This all seemingly relates to a dispute over what Google products Amazon stocks on its flagship selling-stuff website.

Streaming devices allow users to stream videos from platform such as Netflix, YouTube, Hulu, and Amazon Prime on its TV.

IOC suspends Russian Olympic committee
Tatyana Tarasova, a prominent Russian figure skating coach, said the International Olympic Committee decision was "absolutely unjust".

Two tech giants are in a messy streaming video fight right now, leaving consumers squeezed in the middle. The last nail in the coffin was the fact that Amazon has stopped selling Nest devices a couple of months ago.

A statement from Amazon on Tuesday didn't address Google's claims.

Support for the Apple TV Amazon Prime Video app came one day after Google announced it was removing YouTube support from both Fire TV and Echo Show, Amazon's smart speaker that features a touchscreen.

Either way, with no headway being made in that domain just yet, Fire TV users who open the YouTube app on their devices are now met with a message informing them that "starting on 1 Jan 2018, YouTube will not be available on this device".

At this point, it's easy to see why Amazon wouldn't want to support Google's products, and vice versa: Each company is using hardware to fortify themselves while attacking their rival's core business. Apple TV owners can find Amazon Video in the App Store, and download it for free. Google, meanwhile, said that "Amazon's implementation of YouTube on the Echo Show violates our terms of service". Amazon kicked the Chromecast, Google's television player, off its retail website in 2015, along with Apple Inc's TV player. As of time of writing, the product was not listed on Amazon.
