On that call, says the person, Amazon told Nest that the decision came from the top - and that it had nothing to do with the quality of Nest products, which had great reviews on Amazon.
Acquisition of Ring, a maker of smart home doorbell and in-home camera last month, has put Amazon in a much better position to integrate its products with Alexa, accelerating its ability to compete with Google's own smart home ambitions, the report said.
Amazon, in a conference call late past year, told Nest that it would not be listing any of Nest's new products, including smart thermostat and home security products, among others, on its website, the Business Insider reported.
In the wake of the decision, Nest said it would stop selling all its products via Amazon. It's not the first time Amazon has refused to sell Google's products. Recent rumours suggest the online retailer will soon stop selling the Big G's line of Nest products.
This is another chess move in the ongoing war between the two smart home giants. According to the Business Insider report, Google representatives had tipped off Nest employees some time ago of Amazon's new stance. Right now, several Nest products are available with Prime shipping, but they're "fulfilled by Amazon" and actually being sold by other vendors. It's unclear whether third-party sellers will continue selling Nest gadgets, but Amazon itself will not. To date, Amazon has dominated the voice-controlled speaker market with its Echo devices, which were projected to hold more than 70% of the us market in 2017.
As payback, Google blocked YouTube from Amazon's smart-speaker-with-a-screen, the Amazon Echo Show. Nest has a mixed track record at Google, though, so it's also possible the company is bringing it closer to home in order to redeploy its talent towards other parts of Google's smart ecosystem.
Aside from nixing Google's phones and speakers, Amazon has yet to re-list its rival's Chromecast streaming device, after promising to restart sales of it in December.
