The rivalry between Amazon and Google will result in an end to Nest sales through the online retailer, according to a recent report.
Google’s Nest team was reportedly informed by Amazon in recent weeks that it won’t sell the newest Nest products, and as a result Nest will stop offering any of its products through Amazon.
The decision came from “the top” of Amazon, the sources claim.
People familiar with the alleged call from Amazon to Google recently spoke with Business Insider, claiming Amazon got in contact with the Nest team to give them the bad news.
The decision isn’t due to any issues with the Nest products themselves, the sources say, but rather is the decision of someone or multiple someones “from the top” of Amazon.
According to the report, Amazon’s team never pointed fingers at company CEO Jeff Bezos, but Nest employees reportedly ended the call under the impression that the decision came from Bezos.
