Amazon and Google announced that in the coming months, the two companies will launch the official YouTube app on Amazon Fire TV devices and Fire TV Edition smart TVs, as well as the Prime Video app for streaming to Chromecast and Chromecast built-in devices. In addition, the Prime Video will be available across Android TV device partners, and the YouTube TV and YouTube Kids apps will also come to Fire TV later this year.
Using the Youtube app, the users of Fire TV will be able to sign in to their existing YouTube account, access their full library of content, and play videos in 4K HDR at 60 frames per second on supported devices. In addition, standalone YouTube TV and YouTube Kids apps will also launch later this year on Fire TV devices and Fire TV Edition smart TVs where available. Furthermore, Chromecast and Chromecast built-in users, along with Android TV users, will have easy access to the Prime Video catalog including the latest seasons of Amazon Originals.
