Inside the Nexus Player

The Nexus Player is a portable device that connects to your TV via a HDMI port and enables you stream content on your TV and other mobile devices. Netfix, Hulu, YouTube, and a host of other content streaming services are listed as supported. The connection to the internet is done over Wi-Fi.

Like the Chromecast, the Nexus Player supports Google Cast which enables you stream content from your other Android devices as well as iOS devices, Chromebooks, Mac or Windows laptops to your TV.

The Nexus Player Syncs your content across all your Android devices so that for example you can start watching a movie on your TV and resume later on a tablet. The included remote features voice control which enables search for content easily.

Beyond streaming and App mirroring, the Nexus Player is also positioning itself as a gaming console. The Gamepad controller, which is sold separately enables you to enjoy an amazing gaming experience.
