The echo show does play Youtube content, it didn't for a while but I tried it yesterday and it is back.
The other echos without screens don't play Youtube.
Google Home would need a Chromecast and you would cast to a TV.

I read that Amazon restricts access to YouTube, because it competes withtheir Amazon video service.73 N2DYN Angelo-----Original Message-----From: main@TechTalk.groups.io [mailto:main@TechTalk.groups.io] On Behalf OfVicky VaughanSent: Monday, December 4, 2017 6:26 PMSubject: Re: [TechTalk] Amazon Echo or Google HomeWhich will access YouTube?How do I tell Alexa to play the sound from the video show?Example, if I ask her to play Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, she plays thesong and not the CBS show.Sincerely, Vicky-----Original Message-----From: main@TechTalk.groups.io [mailto:main@TechTalk.groups.io] On Behalf OfMichael BoydSent: Monday, December 4, 2017 12:32 AMSubject: Re: [TechTalk] Amazon Echo or Google HomeWhich will access YouTube?As the Echo Dot accesses the internet to retrieve the information which isgiven the user, I would feel certain that she could access Youtube and playa video from there, or at least the audio from a video.

I am teaching him how to use jaws with his computer, but Ithink he would be really interested in the fire tablet. What more doyou know about it? You can write me off list at jazzpiano@....

And yes,you can also use some of the Kindle e-reader's. Those are the devices thatare made just for reading books. Otherwise, the cheapest alternative is topurchase a Kindle fire tablet. That lets you re-kindle books and also doother things. And right now, those tablets are on a good deal of Amazon.The cheapest one is the fire seven and I think it's $30 right now. The HDeight is $50, and the HD 10 is $100 for the les expensive device. Aside fromsize, the major difference that would concern us would be the fact that boththeeight and the 10 have two speakers, and they sound better than the seven.Also the 10 has a newer processor and more storage space, although all ofthem come with a card slot. I don't have personal experience using the Ereaders, but I know that some of them can be used.MarySent from my iPhoneOn Nov 27, 2017, at 10:00 AM, Jim Rawls <jazzpiano@...> wrote:Hi all,I don't have a kindle reader now, but I am thinking about getting one.Is there a standalone kindle reader that I can get that I wouldn'thave to use my computer with it?
