Google bars Amazon Echo show from Accessing YouTube
Oct 01, 2017, 00:31
It will let you make video calls, leverage Google Assistant, view Google Photos, and watch YouTube videos.
For those of you who don't know, the Amazon Echo is a lineup of smart speakers and now a smart alarm clock.
Granted I'm not such a big fan of the Echo anyway, but adding a screen to a dedicated virtual assistant box seems like creating devices for the sake of it. The new Echo Spot also comes with a support for AmazonAlexa so you can command to it and it will does the same thing.
Google subsequently denied making a sudden decision regarding Echo Show compatibility.
Today, Amazonannounced the all-new Fire TV featuring 4K Ultra HD, High Dynamic Range (HDR), and Alexa Voice Remote. These buttons are hockey puck shaped devices that you can use to play various games alongside an Alexa enabled device.
This feature is available for most Echo devices including the Echo Dot, Echo, Echo Plus, Echo Spot, and Echo Show.
The device, which is now codenamed Manhattan, will feature a 7-inch display, just like the Echo Show, but will offer access to a wide range of Google services, including Assistant, Photos and YouTube, along with Netflix. Your Phone number will still be tied to calls so recipients can recognize you.
The new device offers much better sound than the original AmazonEcho, thanks to support for Dolby Audio, which means it'll compete more directly with products such as the Sonos Play:1 and even Apple's upcoming HomePod, the latter of which is due out before the holidays.
Amazon also unveiled a new Fire TV dongle that plugs into the back of a TV (it uses HDMI).
It features just two buttons on the top (one for muting and one for waking Alexa), and the entire top of the device swivels to act as a volume control.
Google's version, reportedly codenamed "Manhattan", will be around the same size as the Echo Show. If Google releases its own Echo Show competitor, the company would finally be able to deliver a YouTube experience that it wants.
Recent rumours have suggested Google is on a similar track. Google's project to produce a similar piece of hardware is code-named Manhattan and sources indicate there is considerable pressure on the team to release it to market before the end of 2017.
