Amazon is planning to launch “AmazonTube” to rival Google’s YouTube

Amazon files for AmazonTube trademark to take on Google's YouTube

Online retail giant, Amazon has filed for an “AmazonTube” trademark this week as it continues its feud with Google.

The California-based search giant recently banned Amazon’s Fire TV and Echo Show from accessing YouTube, due to Amazon’s refusal to sell Google Chromecast and Google Home devices. Now however, Amazon has made a trademark application for its own YouTube-like service.

According to a filing found by TV Answer Man, AmazonTube will provide “non-downloadable pre-recorded audio, visual and audiovisual works via wireless networks on a variety of topics of general interest,” which sounds very much YouTube.

Google and Amazon are now in “productive talks” after Amazon resumed selling Chromecast on its website, however, FireTV and Echo Show users are still unable to access YouTube on their devices.
