So is the YouTube blocking an Amazon's decision to force everyone using Fire to only watch its own video service, or is Google fixing its competitor?
Based on articles, it's implied that Amazon doesn't want Google smart home devices on its online stores competing with its own brand products. So tit for tat, Google pulls support for YouTube app.

Those who bought fire HD 8, your devices working fine?

Sadly mine have an issue with the screen already. Never drop it or subjected it to harsh conditions yet the screen just went unresponsive out of a sudden. Follow the troubleshooting guides also can't be resolved.

I don't think is due to poor quality of the device la, most probably is just unlucky.

Send the device back to US already. Kind of sad about it because I really like the tablet

It’s true for $40 probably not worth buying screen protector and casing

It’s a fuss free tablet at a price point that is unbeatable despite the restrictions

Actually no need casing

It's really quite easy to install Google Play store on it. Just google and there are lots of details guides. So far, I have no issues installing any apps from the Play store.
