Online retailer Amazon has decided to Not sell any of the new products from Google’s smart home division Nest, once its current Inventory runs out, the Press reported.
Amazon, at a conference call late last year, told Nest it would not be listing some of Nest’s brand new products, including smart thermostat and home safety products, amongst others, on its own site, the Business Insider reported.
After weeks of being unresponsive to Nest, Amazon advised the company that the directive “came from the top,” something Nest took to mean that it was passed down by CEO Jeff Bezos.
But, there has been no direct verification on this, ” the report said.
As a consequence of Amazon’s conclusion, Nest decided to stop selling any of its products through Amazon, which means that the restricted variety of Nest devices listed on Amazon are expected to disappear from the website once current stock is sold out.
The company has also decided to remove its present set of old products from Amazon because it wanted to be able to offer its entire portfolio of devices, or nothing in any way, the report said.
Amazon’s move marks the latest advancement within their rocky relationship over the future of the intelligent home.
The online merchant had steadfastly refused to sell some Google-branded products like the Google Home voice assistant speaker and the company’s Pixel tablets.
In December 2017, the online retailer said it would restart earnings of their Chromecast streaming device, but hasn’t yet been achieved yet.
Last summer, Amazon launched a Prime Video app for Android, but it’s yet to add support for streaming its content using a Chromecast.
On its own part, Google had removed YouTube from Amazon’s Fire TV streaming goods as well as the Echo Show/Spot, claiming that Amazon has violated its terms of support with all those implementations of the YouTube app.
Acquisition of Ring, a maker of smart house doorbell and in-home camera last month, has set Amazon in a significantly better position to integrate its products with Alexa, quickening its ability to compete with Google’s own smart house ambitions, the report said.
