Amazon Decides To Not Sell Any New Nest Products

Amazon Alexa

According to a source familiar with the situation, Amazon's retail team did not specify who gave the order to stop selling Nest's future products but mentioned that the decision "came from the top".

It is not clear if third-party Amazon sellers will still be able to sell Nest products, or if Amazon will impose a site-wide ban in response to Nest. The retail giant clarified that the decision had nothing to do with the quality of the Nest products, which consistently received great reviews on Amazon's listings.

A person familiar with the matter said that in response, Nest chose to take an "all or nothing" approach and stop selling its products on Amazon once current stocks run out.

This is not the first time Amazon and Google have locked horns. 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. Previous summer, Amazon started a Prime Video app for Android, but has yet to add support for streaming its content with a Chromecast. Then, the e-commerce giant removed YouTube from Amazon's Fire TV products and the Echo Show due to "lack of reciprocity".

Jeff Bezos and co. also recently snapped up smart doorbell-maker Ring, which is expected to form part of the Amazon's in-home delivery service: Amazon Key.

Nest, which primarily makes smart thermostats for homes, was bought by Google for around $3.2 million back in 2014. The banned products include the Nest Secure home system and the tremendously popular Nest thermostat. Amazon continues to sell similar products from other manufacturers such as August, Lighthouse, etc.

Basically, both want to monitor customers' smart home usage and try to snatch up as much auditory information as possible while they're there via smart speakers that can listen in on verbal commands, all in the hopes of building better ad profiles.
