Google Nexus Player review


Android TV has landed, but this is far from the smoothest of arrivals

Slick interface ; Speedy operation ; It's also a Chromecast

Massive lack of apps ; Too little storage if you're going to use it for games ; Doesn't do enough that the Chromecast doesn't already do

The Nexus Player’s good ideas are outweighed by the current lack of content.

Nexus Player (análisis): Android TV necesita más apps, menos enfoque en servicios de Google

El ; ofrece una buena búsqueda por voz convencional que incluye un control remoto físico. Si usas tu teléfono o tableta para transmitir apps compatibles, ofrece acceso a los servicios más importantes. Ofrece juegos de Android a una pantalla grande y es...

En el lanzamiento, la selección de apps nativos es abismal en comparación con Roku, Apple TV y Amazon Fire TV. La interfaz parece diseñada para empujar a los usuarios hacia los servicios de Google y la función de búsqueda por voz no funciona en apps de...

Hasta que reciba una gran infusión de apps nativos y soporte de desarrolladores, al igual que una mejor integración con otros servicios diferentes a los de Google, el Nexus Player con Android TV no ofrece ninguna actualización sobre los otros...

ALMOST perfect, just missing a few apps.


The box itself is great. Strong Wifi reception, solid physical build, and the remote is simple, but easily gets the job done.

Physical Design, UI Design

Some apps don't support Android TV properly

Broken Wifi makes device useless


I got one of these for free and have been trying it out. The device and the interface look good and I found it relatively easy to navigate through menus.

Good physical and interface design

Google and 3rd party apps unstable, few 3rd party apps, Wifi broken

Great piece of hardware


" It is easy to setup, very fast, all apps you could ever need, android games, casting is stable and responsive. If you are in the Google ecosystem a no-brainer. The fact you can control it though the tv remote is also great (not sure if only Sony)....
