Amazon would launch its service to compete with YouTube

Amazon has filed two brands that suggest the company is setting up its own video platform to compete with YouTube.
If Amazon has made such a decision, we have no doubt that it follows Google’s decision to block YouTube on Amazon Echo Show devices. If they are also equipped with the personal assistant Alexa, the Echo Show also seduce the users by proposing a screen, point very attractive since it allows the viewing of many videos bone. Finally, until Google blocks the main video platform to harm his competitor. After all, the race for voice assistants is played mostly between Google Home and Amazon Echo, which explains the decision made by Google. If Jeff Bezos’s firm were to create their own video service, it would allow them to emancipate very largely from their direct competitor.
This week, the TV Answer Man website found that Amazon had filed two brand names at the USPTO, the office patents and trademarks: AmazonTube and OpenTube. If the names can still leave room for doubt, the contents of the two patents are more explicit, it would be a question of treating “ pre-recorded audio non-downloadable As well as “ non-downloadable films and other audiovisual content in the form of films, TV shows, music videos and entertainment videos” Â ». In short, streaming videos on many topics. The patents would also relate to a “ software or mobile application “.
A few days later, the Web site DomainNameWire noticed that Amazon had registered three domain names: AlexaOpenTube.com, AmazonAlexaTube.com, and AmazonOpenTube.com. suggest that the new service will be directly related to Alexa, Amazon’s personal assistant.
Amazon and Google are already facing each other directly through services such as smart assistants and music streaming, but this is not the case in the video industry. With the launch of such a service, Amazon would come to create a new rivalry where YouTube currently has no competition.
