Amazon might be working on a competitor for YouTube

YouTube on a tablet, AmazonTube apparently in the works

Amazon seems to aim at Google's YouTube these days, since the online commerce giant already registered a few URLs such as AmazonOpenTube.com, not to mention the trademark requests with the US Patent and Trademark Office.

The fight between Amazon and Google seems to be moving to a whole new level, according to the latest findings that suggest the first is working on a competitor for YouTube. In the last few months, their struggle became obvious when Google pulled out YouTube from the Amazon Echo Show, and then Amazon refused to sell Chromecast streamers due to the fact that Amazon Prime Video is not available for them.

According to the documents filed by Amazon with the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), the service that will offer "non-downloadable pre-recorded audio, visual and audiovisual works via wireless networks" will be known as AmazonTube, OpenTube, or something that involves at least a part of these names. Quite confusing, right? To make the whole deal even more confusing, Amazon registered the following domain names: AlexaOpenTube.com, AmazonOpenTube.com, and AmazonAlexaTube.com.

Since the advertising revenue of many content creators that use YouTube has recently taken a dive due to Google's ever-changing policies, Amazon simply needs to compensate them more to lure at least some of them away. Obviously, drawing the attention of enough YouTube users to set things in motion will be even more difficult. As for the name, AmazonTube might not be such a good idea. Just look for it using DuckDuckGo's image search after disabling Safe Search and you will understand why I say that...

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
