Amazon and Google Continue To Clash This Time For Smart Security Supremacy
The tiff between Google and Amazon does not look like it is going to end anytime soon. The dissension began when Amazon told Nest that they will not be listing Google’s latest products, such as new thermostats by Nest and Secure home security system. The response by Nest was to go off their website completely.
BI said that once Nest’s current inventory on Amazon is sold out, it’ll no longer replenish its stocks. Nest wants to be able to offer its whole portfolio on the platform. It would rather not sell anything on the website at all if it can’t, though it’s still unclear if that means even third-party sellers can’t list Nest devices in the marketplace.
Amazon recently bought Ring, a smart doorbell maker. They are believed to integrate the products by Ring into Amazon’s ecosystem. Last year, Amazon also acquired Blink, a home security company.
In 2015, Amazon and Google had their first clash when Amazon removed Chromecast listings due to lack of support for Prime Video. Google retaliated by blocking Echo Show and Fire TV devices from getting access to YouTube. Amazon later declared that it will offer Chromecast again.
