However, there has been no direct announcement of this.
As reacting to the news, Nest will no longer vend any of its products on Amazon after current inventory runs out. This is reportedly because of the company requirement to have its total lineup available.
Nest has resolved to stop additional restocks at Amazon once remaining product inventory is drained. It’s uncertain whether third-party sellers will carry on selling Nest gadgets, but Amazon itself will not. In separating itself from Amazon, Nest’s reasoning is that the powerful retailer should be dealing its overall product family or nothing at all. Presently several Nest products are handy with Prime shipping, but they’re “fulfilled by Amazon” and literally being sold by other sellers.
