Amazon will soon stop selling Nest products as spat with Google deepens

Amazon will soon stop selling all Nest products

The report comes from Business Insider, with the site claiming Amazon informed Nest it would stop listing the firm's products late past year. After weeks of simply ignoring the products and being unresponsive to Nest, Amazon informed the company of its decision by phone late in the year and said the directive "came from the top", something Nest took to mean it had been handed down by CEO Jeff Bezos. Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to be the case as Amazon has now announced that it will stop selling Google-owned Nest smart home products as its spat spills out into 2018. On its part, Google had removed YouTube from Amazon's Fire TV streaming products and the Echo Show/Spot, claiming that Amazon has violated its terms of service with those implementations of the YouTube app. The online retailer had steadfastly refused to sell some Google-branded products like the Google Home voice assistant speaker and the company's Pixel smartphones. The feud is believed to have first started in 2015 when Amazon pulled Chromecast products from its platform due to a lack of support for Prime Video.

Amazon will continue to sell the Nest products it still has in stock, but once the inventory is flogged, it won't be replenishing.

Putin: Russia will 'never' extradite citizens accused by US
The Justice Department said the aims included undermining faith in USA democracy, disparaging Clinton, and aiding Trump. Asked by Kelly if he would extradite them, Putin said no.

Technically, you still might find Nest products through third-party sellers in the Marketplace program.

KitGuru Says: It doesn't seem that Amazon was intentionally trying to attack Google specifically with this move, as any company treading on its current market expansion would be set to get thrown out of the marketplace, however it likely isn't going to help things. And Amazon is also probably looking at creating products that may rival that of Nest, as they have recently acquired Ring, a maker of home security devices. It will be interesting to see how the war between Amazon and Google pans out, as the companies come in increasingly direct competition with each other in segments ranging from home automation to digital ads.
