Amazon to Stop Selling Google Nest Devices

  • Amazon will soon stop selling all Nest products

It is unknown whether Amazon will allow Nest products to be sold through the Marketplace. The decision from Amazon's retail team was reportedly relayed through a conference call late previous year and they were informed that the decision came from the top (and we assume it's CEO Jeff Bezos they were pertaining to).

On that call, says the person, Amazon told Nest that the decision came from the top - and that it had nothing to do with the quality of Nest products, which had great reviews on Amazon. It's not the first time Amazon has refused to sell Google's products.

As a result of Amazon's decision, Nest chose to stop selling any of its products through Amazon, meaning the limited number of Nest devices listed on Amazon today are expected to disappear from the site once current inventory is sold out, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Amazon's move marks the latest development in their rocky relationship over the future of the smart home. It previously wouldn't sell Google Home speakers or the Pixel phone.

Last summer, Amazon launched a Prime Video app for Android, but it's yet to add support for streaming its content with a Chromecast. But officially, Nest will probably be gone from Amazon in a few months' time. The Nest team came back by refusing to provide additional inventory for current Nest products under the explanation that the online retail giant should either sell all of the products in the family or none of them at all. As the Business Insider report notes, spokespersons from Amazon and Nest declined to comment, although they didn't deny the reports either.

The feud between Amazon and Google is getting more intense as Amazon has recently announced that soon they will no longer be selling Google's Nest line of products. It's unclear whether third-party sellers will continue selling Nest gadgets, but Amazon itself will not. It will be interesting to see how the war between Amazon and Google pans out, as the companies come in increasingly direct competition with each other in segments ranging from home automation to digital ads.
