"We've been trying to reach agreement with Amazon to give consumers access to each other's products and services", reads Google's statement.

Separately, Google has pulled support for its YouTube video service from Amazon's Fire TV and Echo Show devices in the latest phase of an escalating war between the two online giants. In its own statement, Seattle-based Amazon said its gadgets now send users to the YouTube website, and the company hopes to resolve the dispute as soon as possible.

Amazon stopped retailing Google's Chromecast and Nexus Player products two years ago - alongside withdrawal of Apple's Apple TV product. Currently, Apple's original content consists of shows such as Carpool Karaoke and the inane reality TV competition Planet of the Apps, which pales in comparison to the kind of award-winning programming Netflix and Amazon have been developing, such as Stranger Things and Transparent. The Chromecast streaming product was removed from Amazon.com in 2015.

Amazon quickly responded to the move calling it a "disappointing precedent" on Google's part to selectively block customer access to an open website.
