This is the third important news about Google today. Earlier they announced their new Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system, the latest Nexus 9 tablet and the gigantic Nexus 6 smartphone. One could say this is a big day for Google. The last but not least important product that Google announced today is their brand new Nexus Player TV. That’s right, after Amazon, Apple and some other important streaming TVs it was time for Google to announce their product in this field.
Being an online media player, Nexus Player TV runs plenty of streaming apps. On Google’s webpage it says that the new TV includes Hulu Plus, Netflix, Youtube, Plex, Crackle and Pandora. Nexus Player will also support Google Music, Google Movies and Google TV. It can stream anything from Google Chrome on all the operating systems like Windows, Linux, Android, ChromeOS, iOs and Mac OS X.
The new Nexus Player is part of the Nexus line of tablets and phones and it features the latest Android Lollipop operating system. Google’s new streaming TV was designed for app-based smartphones and its main purpose is to bring flexibility and high quality content. The Nexus Player TV is also known as the Android TV and comes with a new interface designed to look amazing on a big screen, while being navigated with a remote control.
The Nexus Player looks like a small black cylinder and comes with a remote control, a quite atypical one, we might add. It features a microphone for voice commands, a small touchpad and only four buttons. It’s practically the easiest TV remote controls ever. The Nexus Player also comes with a gamepad for games.
The new Nexus Player streaming TV was created by the famous PC brand Asus and will be available for purchasing in US and Canada starting with November. The price of the new Android TV is $99, just like the Apple TV.
What do you think about the new Nexus Player TV from Google? Will it prove to be a serious competition for other popular streaming TVs like Amazon, Apple or Roku? Let us know what you think in the comment section below.
