Amazon, fearing competition, won't sell Nest products anymore

Voice shopping sales to reach $40B by 2022: study

Voice shopping sales to reach $40B by 2022: study

The report says that Amazon representatives told Nest that the decision "came from the top", which implies this goes all the way up to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, though no report has concluded that with any certainty. And now, it looks as though smart-home manufacturer Nest, also owned by Google, is set to suffer a similar fate.

The report comes from Business Insider, with the site claiming Amazon informed Nest it would stop listing the firm's products late past year.

After Amazon's decision to stop selling new Nest products, Nest announced that it would no longer sell any of its products via Amazon once current inventory sells out.

Fight! Fight! Fight! The ongoing seismic (yet somehow, undeniably petty) tit-for-tat scuffle between Amazon and Google continues to rumble on.

The spat between Amazon and Google is escalating, with the latter preparing to stop sales of a slew of its gadgets on the online shopping site.

Kelly: I have 'nothing to even consider resigning over'
Scaramucci also referred to Kelly as "General Jackass". "I never saw him mad or abusive in anyway", Kelly told reporters Friday. He said that he spoke to Porter after the second allegation and insisted that at this point, Porter had "already resigned".

It is unclear what the extent of the embargo on Nest products is - for example, Amazon has not clarified if third-party sellers selling Nest products through Amazon Marketplace will have to pull their product offerings as well. As a result, those Nest products that are now listed on Amazon are expected to be removed once their stocks run out.

Both Nest and Amazon has declined to comment, the report said. 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.

Nest's view is that they would either like to sell their entire product portfolio, or nothing at all, and hence they won't be restocking products after they're sold out from this point on. It previously wouldn't sell Google Home speakers or the Pixel phone.

Nest, which primarily makes smart thermostats for homes, was bought by Google for around $3.2 million back in 2014. The company also just purchased the video doorbell company Ring, for $1 billion to expand on its smart home line of products. Amazon already has previous when it comes to removing Google-affiliated items from sale.
