The Google Nexus 7 tablet was not the only Nexus device unveiled today. Google also introduced Nexus Q, billed as “the world’s first social streaming media player.”
Nexus Q streams your favorite entertainment directly from the cloud to your living room. Just use the Google Play and YouTube apps on your Android phone or tablet to surf an ocean of music, TV, movies and music, and Nexus Q will play it all on the biggest speakers and screen in the house. There are no downloads, no syncing, no running out of space. Just the stuff you love — at home and out loud.
The Nexus Q streams content from Google’s services such as Google Play Movies and Google Play Music. You can also stream music that you uploaded to Google Play through Music Manager. As for the social aspect, the Nexus Q supports a guest mode that lets others connect to it to stream their own music, movies and videos. It can only be managed via Android devices.
