Amazon shoppers can once again buy Google's Chromecast media streaming devices direct from the online retailer.
Google's Chromecasts compete with Amazon's own Fire TV line of streaming devices and initially Amazon claimed it removed Chromecast from its catalog to "avoid customer confusion" by selling streamers that weren't fully compatible with Amazon's Prime Video service. In response, Google removed YouTube from Amazon's devices.
Apple's Apple TV streaming boxes were removed from Amazon for the same reason in 2015, but. Chromecasts are still not fully compatible with Amazon's Prime Video app, but the service can be casted directly from Google's Chrome browser.
Google and Amazon representatives had no comment on the return beyond confirming the devices are available for purchase on Amazon.
