Google is pulling YouTube from Amazon’s Echo Show, and Fire TV devices through the online retailer’s refusal to take certain products from the search company.

In the pulling of the YouTube support, Google said its own products, Google Home page, and Chromecast, are not available for sale on Amazon. Last month, the e-commerce giant also stopped the sale of certain products of Nest, a company under Google’s older Alphabet.

“Based on the absence of reciprocity, we are no longer supporting YouTube on the Echo Show, and Fire TV,” Google said in an e-mail on Tuesday.

According to Bloomberg, Google is pulling the plug on YouTube for an Ultrasound on Tuesday, and the end of the Fire TV support on Jan. 1.
