The Android ecosystem has a nearly limitless number of apps, games, movies and music to enjoy through Google's Play Store. But wouldn't it be nice if you can have all that fun on your living room or bedroom television all the time, even when you're not using your phone? Play games, use apps, watch movies...all on the big screen and without having to use your phone to stream. use the Nexus Player to stream to all your mobile devices. It's a great compliment to all your Android devices and you can get a dedicated game controller for that arcade experience as well.
Now you might be wondering...well what's the difference between Chromecast and Nexus Player? Well while Chromecast can just 'cast' what's on your phone or tablet onto a larger screen it doesn't have it's own custom user interface like the Nexus Player. The Nexus Player is much more akin to Amazon's Fire TV or Apple TV and lets you access Android TV on your television with the Google Play Store. You can also use Nexus Player with its own remote control and have custom recommendations come up as well as view your entire library of content on your big television screen as well as play multiplayer games which you can sync across multiple devices. It's also much more powerful than Chromecast on the inside.
The Nexus Player is powered by a 1.8GHz Intel Atom quad-core processor, Imagination PowerVR Series 6 graphics and 1GB of RAM, and it has 8GB of storage. There's support for the lastest 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1, plus an HDMI output for connecting it to your TV. It's a great addition to any Android household and normally it's $99 on the Google site. You can also find it in some other stores for $89.99 but for just today Best Buy has it as a daily deal at only $49.99. That's a screaming deal and a great opportunity to pick up a Nexus Player at half price. Use the link below and get yours before the price goes back up!
