Amazon to stop selling Nest products as the war with Google intensifies

By : |March 5, 2018 0

The war between Amazon and Google isn’t going to end anytime soon. According to Business Insider, Amazon’s retail team told Nest on a call that the e-commerce website won’t be listing the Google-owned company’s newer products. These include Nest’s new thermostats and its Secure home security system launched late last year.

The report said that once Nest’s current inventory on Amazon is sold out, it’ll no longer replenish its stocks. Apparently, Nest wants to be able to offer its whole portfolio on the platform and would rather not sell anything on the website at all if it can’t. It’s still unclear if that means even third-party sellers can’t list Nest devices on the marketplace. Amazon said the decision had nothing to do with the quality of Nest’s products, which have excellent customer reviews, but “came from the top.”

The news comes days after Amazon bought Ring, the maker of the Ring Video Doorbell. Amazon has also been beefing up its own home security products, such as its Cloud Cam.

The disappearance of Nest products from Amazon marks just the latest development in the feud between Amazon and Google. Amazon has in the past refused to sell some Google-branded products like the Google Home voice assistant speaker and the company’s Pixel smartphones.

In December, the online retailer said it would restart sales of the Chromecast streaming device, but it’s been three months and you still can’t buy it. Last summer, Amazon launched a Prime Video app for Android but has yet to add support for streaming its content with a Chromecast.
