It appears Amazon and Google have mended their relationship after going to war over the YouTube app on the Amazon Echo Show. Amazon recently started selling the Chromecast and Apple TV through their marketplace, and most recently, Amazon launched their Prime video app for Android TV. Next step for Amazon is to start supporting Chromecasting from the Amazon Prime video app, but that's a longshot still. The Prime video app for Android TV is now available through the Google Play Store. There is still a little hiccup. The app is showing all Android TV devices are unsupported at this time. Android Police claims the app won't install on any Android TV device yet, but they do note that the Nvidia Shield TV has had the Prime video app for some time now. It's unclear why all the Android TV devices are unsupported, but it's possible Amazon simply overlooked the supported devices. It's also possible that they're testing the app out before a broader public launch.
