"Amazon told Nest that the decision came from the top - and that it had nothing to do with the quality of Nest products, which had great reviews on Amazon", explains the site. The company is keen on further expanding into the smart homes sector, particularly with its Echo range of products that come integrated with Alexa, its voice assistant.

A Business Insider report yesterday, March 4, stated that on a conference call a year ago, Amazon's retail team told Nest employees that the e-commerce platform would not list any of Nest's newer products, including the latest Nest thermostats and Nest Secure home security systems.

Presently several Nest products are handy with Prime shipping, but they're "fulfilled by Amazon" and literally being sold by other sellers. The company debuted Amazon Key last fall, which is powered by a home security camera and smart lock that recognize delivery personnel and lets them enter a home to deliver a package. With Alexa, Echo users can ask to play music, hear the news, check weather, control smart home devices and more.

An ongoing feud between Amazon and Google means many of Google's products - including its Home, Chromecast and even Pixel devices - have not been stocked by the online retailer a couple of years. Amazon pursues to sell homogeneous products from August and other companies, but soon won't have to worry about advertising one of its main competitors on its own store.

Last week, Amazon unveiled that it plans to buy Ring, a company that manufactures connected door bells, for $1 billion, according to Reuters.
