A big day for Google. First a tablet, and now what they dub to be “the world’s first social streaming media player.”
The Google Nexus Q was made to compete with Apple TV and other similar devices. Using your Android phone or tablet, you can send music, shows, movies and videos directly to the Nexus Q, allowing you to play everything on your big screen TV and entertainment system without any downloads or syncing. You can also turn on guest mode to allow your friends to choose what gets played (assuming they have an Android device and a connection to your Wi-Fi network).
The Q looks quite sexy too. But the 32 LEDs aren’t just for looks. They also shift and change color to your music.
