Google has been protective of how YouTube functions on third-party devices in the past, though in this case, the timing seems a little bit suspect.

The event also included a new Fire TV with 4K HDR video support with 2160 pixels resolution at 60fps. That includes support for gaming on Echo devices using the EchoButton. But Amazon is clearly prepped up to spruce into the smart home hub market ahead of Google and Apple, both of whom who yet holds an upper hand with their disposal of smartphones. According to a report from Verge, Amazon will launch the Echo Show in Germany and United Kingdom soon. To be priced at $130, so far the Spot only has U.S. release in the pipeline (December 2017).
