Sources cited in the report said they were given the impression that the decision came directly from Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.
Business Insider reports that Amazon has chose to not sell any new products from Google-owned Nest and that this was a decision that the Nest team had been expecting.
According to Business Insider, Nest's employees were informed via a conference call at the end of past year that the retail giant would not be listing its newest products - which include a smart doorbell - on its site.
In response, Nest opted to cease selling its older wares through Amazon, which should disappear once stock runs out (as of this writing, several Nest products are still listed, though several of them have warnings of low stock).
On its part, Google had removed YouTube from Amazon's Fire TV streaming products and the Echo Show/Spot, claiming that Amazon has violated its terms of service with those implementations of the YouTube app.
The spat between Amazon and Google is escalating, with the latter preparing to stop sales of a slew of its gadgets on the online shopping site. The few Nest devices that are now listed on Amazon are expected to disappear from the online retail store once the inventory runs out. While there appeared to be some reconciliation past year after an announcement on Google Chromecasts resuming sales on the e-commerce platform, they still aren't available three months later.
This is another chess move in the ongoing war between the two smart home giants.
Both Nest and Amazon has declined to comment, the report said. No news right now if Amazon will also restrict Nest products from the Marketplace. With Alexa, Echo users can ask to play music, hear the news, check weather, control smart home devices and more.
Amazon already refuses to sell Google's Pixel phones and Google Home smart speakers.
As payback, Google blocked YouTube from Amazon's smart-speaker-with-a-screen, the Amazon Echo Show.
Last week, Amazon unveiled that it plans to buy Ring, a company that manufactures connected door bells, for $1 billion, according to Reuters.
