The mending relationship between Amazon and Google continues with Prime TV support coming for Chromecast, Android TV.
Amazon Prime Video subscribers will be able to cast their content to Google's Chromecast and Chromecast built-in devices. You'll need the latest Prime Video app and Android 5.0 or higher or iOS 10.1 or higher on your phone or tablet to receive the update.

Chromecast Ultra users get access to 4,000 titles included with Prime at no additional cost.

Whiole some select Android TV devices already have Amazon Prime Video, support will be rolling out to many more Android TV smart TVs, set-top boxes and streaming devices. The Prime Video app is available on Google Play for supported devices.

Another piece of good news that has come from Amazon and Google burying the hatchet is YouTube's availability on Fire TV devices. From today, the official YouTube app on Amazon Fire TV is available worldwide on Fire TV Stick (2nd Gen), Fire TV Stick 4K, Fire TV Cube, Fire TV Stick Basic Edition, and Toshiba, Insignia, Element, and Westinghouse Fire TV Edition smart TVs.



Additional device support will roll out in the coming months, and YouTube TV and YouTube Kids will launch later this year.
