Online Merchant Amazon has decided to Not sell Some of the new products from Google’s smart House division Nest, after its current stock runs out, the Press reported.
Amazon, at a conference call late last year, advised Nest it would not be listing some of Nest’s new products, including smart thermostat and home safety products, amongst others, on its own website, the Business Insider reported.
After weeks of being migrated to Nest, Amazon informed the company that the directive “came from the top,” something Nest chose to mean that it was handed down by CEO Jeff Bezos.
However, there’s been no direct verification on this, ” the report said.
As a consequence of Amazon’s decision, Nest decided to stop selling any of its products through Amazon, which means the limited number of Nest devices recorded on Amazon are predicted to disappear from the website once current stock is sold out.
The company also has determined to remove its present set of older products from Amazon because it wanted to have the ability to give its full portfolio of devices, or nothing at all, the report said.
Amazon’s move marks the most recent development within their rocky relationship over the future of the intelligent home.
The online retailer had steadfastly refused to market some Google-branded products such as the Google Home voice assistant speaker as well as also the company’s Pixel tablets.
In December 2017, the internet merchant said it would restart sales of their Chromecast streaming device, but hasn’t yet been achieved yet.
Last summer, Amazon launched a Prime Video program for Android, but it is yet to add support for streaming its own content using a Chromecast.
On its own part, Google had eliminated YouTube from Amazon’s Fire TV streaming products as well as the Echo Show/Spot, claiming that Amazon has violated its terms of service with those implementations of this YouTube app.
Acquisition of Ring, a maker of smart house doorbell and in-home camera, has put Amazon in a much better position to integrate its products with Alexa, quickening its ability to compete with Google’s own smart home ambitions, ” the report said.
