Nexus Q Social Streaming, A music player from Google


Google has released a social streaming device to the international market. The device will be named Google Nexus Q. Content is streamed from the cloud and you can access shared content on the cloud. The styling and design of this device is impressive with a ball like circular exterior. 

The release of this device is also considered to be a part of the fulfilment of Android@Home standard framework that was announced by Google last year. Android@Home framework was designed and developed for home automation purposes. With this device, users are expected to have a good musical experience in their living room. You can listen to music as well as watch videos with this unique looking gadget. 

The concept behind Nexus Q device is that users can establish a connection between different Nexus Q devices at the same time. Users will be able to send multiple media files for each of those Q devices individually. This easy to use device is capable of providing a complete-home music streaming experience for the whole family members inside a home. 

One of the minor drawbacks is that each Nexus Q device will have their own method of establishing a connection with the internet since the audio content is actually pulled from the Cloud instead of the device.  

Key Features: 

• Built on the Android Home Framework

• 25 watt in-built amplifier

• HDMI output

• LED Light

• Volume Knob

Nexus Q music device will also have to download content from the beginning if the internet connection goes offline when the users are connected to a bad connection. For those users looking out for an analog connection, there is an option for a 25 watt in-built amplifier. For users looking out for a digital connection, HDMI and Toslink provisions are given at the back of its spherical shape. 


The ball is comprised of two halves and the space separating the two halves is embedded with an LED light that glows at the time of playing music. It is distracting to a certain extent. The top most portion of the device can be split and used as a volume knob for controlling the volumes. 

Nexus Q device has made its debut in the US market and will be available for customers at a retail price tag of close to Rs. 17,000/- that is a bit expensive compared to Apple TV.
