YouTube is back on the Fire TV, and Prime Video launches on Chromecast starting today

From The Verge: YouTube is officially back on Fire TV devices starting today, almost a year and a half after Google pulled the app as part of a lengthy fight with Amazon. Additionally, Amazon’s Prime Video streaming is also launching today with support for Chromecast and more widespread Android TV devices, just as the two companies promised earlier this year.

According to Amazon, the YouTube app will be available on the following devices: the Fire TV Stick (2nd Gen), Fire TV Stick 4K, Fire TV Cube, and Fire TV Stick Basic Edition, along with Toshiba, Insignia, Element, and Westinghouse Fire TV Edition smart TVs.

Unlike the web browser workaround that Fire TV owners have had to use since Google pulled the original app, the official release is a full-fledged Fire TV app, complete with Alexa voice controls that will let users easily find content to watch.

Amazon promises that more Fire TV devices will be getting the YouTube app “in the coming months,” along with support for YouTube Kids and the live YouTube TV service that’s set to release later this year.
