Recently Amazon quietly readded the Chromecast to their store. Now you can buy the Chromecast 3rd gen and the Chromecast Ultra through Amazon. This move by Amazon is very interesting as the Chromecast does not support Amazon Prime streaming at this time.
The Chromecast was removed from Amazon at the same time the Apple TV was dropped. Shortly after the Apple TV returned to Amazon, Apple added support for Amazon Prime Video on the Apple TV. Hopefully, this is a sign that Amazon Prime Video will be coming to Chromecast players soon.
