Amazon Kindle Fire Black Friday Deals and Sales 2017

Google's Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals are all about the smart home

Google's Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals are all about the smart home

Amazon's big blowout Black Friday Deals on its Echo and Fire products are now live. Now, it looks as though the matter has been resolved.

Still, Business Insider has claimed that Apple delaying the release of its competition against the Amazon Echo could give the latter an advantage in the smart speaker market since the Holiday season is a ideal opportunity to widen the gap. Google, meanwhile, said it had been in negotiations with Amazon for a "long time" with regard to poor app design.

Apple is way behind Amazon in the smart speaker contest, as the HomePod's release date has been delayed and rescheduled once again after years in development.

They're the devices that everyone talks about and seems to own.

Google Home Gains Multi-Calendar Support

Whatever the case, Amazon responded by slashing $30 off the cost of the device, temporarily bringing it down from $230 to just $200 (it eventually went back up to its original price). The company told Voicebot.ai that it's "excited" to give Echo Show users the ability to watch videos from sources like YouTube, Vimeo, and Dailymotion, adding that "more video sources will be added over time". This is great news for existing Echo Show owners and those that might be eyeballing one for the holidays.

There is no explanation for the changes, but we can settle for that as opposed to not having YouTube videos on the Echo Show.

Where can I get it: Sonos.com, Amazon and Best Buy.

It all started when Google objected to the way Amazon implemented YouTube support in Echo Show.
