Based on reports, YouTube might disappear from this device next month. Even though it is not an official app from Google from my understanding.

Google lashes out at Amazon, blocks YouTube access from the Fire TV, Echo Show | Latest News & Updates at Daily News & Analysis

In a statement, Google said, "Amazon doesn't carry Google products like Chromecast and Google Home, doesn't make (its) Prime Video available for Google Cast users, and last month stopped selling some of (our sister company) Nest's latest products. Given this lack of reciprocity, we are no longer supporting YouTube on Echo Show and Fire TV," Google said. "We hope we can reach an agreement to resolve these issues soon."

Amazon said in a statement, "Google is setting a disappointing precedent by selectively blocking customer access to an open website."

Unless YouTube is blocked inside a browser running on Amazon devices, this is nonsense. They have a right to control their APIs. But the website should load inside a web browser. Blocking access to that on certain devices would be problematic.
