The official YouTube app for Amazon's Fire TV devices is available starting Tuesday (July 9) worldwide - a year and a half after Google pulled YouTube from the Fire TV platform.

As for YouTube, it now works natively on the following Amazon devices: Fire TV Stick (2nd Gen), Fire TV Stick 4K, Fire TV Cube, and Fire TV Stick Basic Edition; it'll also work with Fire TV Edition smart TVs from Toshiba, Insignia, Element, and Westinghouse. Similarly, YouTube will roll out on Amazon Fire TV.

You can add YouTube to your Fire TV Stick HERE. The two companies had previously prevented their respective video services from being available on each other's TV streaming platforms. Now, both features are live, meaning both Fire TV and Chromecast will now feel like complete devices, regardless of which one you pick, which not just benefits both companies but most importantly, also us as consumers. Amazon reversed that decision in December 2017, but the streaming wars continued. The Echo Show devices, which kicked off the YouTube feud, don't have the new app as they don't run the Android-based Fire TV software.

With expanded Alexa voice controls, users can search, launch, and control their content by saying "Alexa, open YouTube" to get started. Prime Video also offers access to 4K titles included with Prime at no additional cost and options to rent or purchase titles or choose from more than 150 Prime Video Channels including Showtime, HBO, CBS All-Access, Cinemax and STARZ.

On Amazon's Echo devices though, all is quiet.
