The availability of YouTube for Firestick is always a cat and mouse game. Initially, the YouTube app was available on the Amazon App Store and can be installed on Fire TV. Then, in 2018, the app was removed from the store and stopped supporting Firestick devices. And then after a year, in April 2019, the app was released again on the Amazon App Store and made available for Firestick. In turn, Amazon Prime has built-in Chromecast support. A conflict between Google and Amazon is the reason for this. But now it is available on Amazon Firestick.
