[Deal Alert] Google Nexus Player falls to $33 on eBay

Wednesday, September 5th, 2018

The Nexus Player is quite old at this point — after all, it has "Nexus" in its name — but it still has its fans. That's in spite of a sleeping bug from late last year, no more OS or security updates, and most recently and worryingly, a large batch randomly dying. But the units being offered today for $33 on eBay are brand-new, so we suspect that won't be happening anytime soon.

Nexus Players are mysteriously dying as loyal owners hunt for solutions

Monday, August 13th, 2018

For the last few weeks, a conspicuous amount of Nexus Player owners have been reporting that their streaming boxes have up and stopped working. The devices become unresponsive, either hanging at the Google logo during startup or displaying an error message. Some users have been able to save their devices by flashing a new system image, but others haven't been so fortunate.

Seriously, there are a lot of reports. It's not entirely unusual for a device to decline as it gets on in years, but it is weird for so many to bite the dust in such quick succession.

LineageOS 15.1 Oreo arrives on the Nexus Player, two more devices get 14.1

Friday, March 23rd, 2018

After three years of official support, Google confirmed yesterday that the long-lived Nexus Player would no longer receive Android updates. While Android Oreo will continue to serve most users just fine, the custom ROM community will likely keep it updated for years to come. LineageOS already supported the set-top box with Nougat builds, but now it has been updated to Android 8.1 Oreo.

LineageOS 15.1 builds for the Nexus Player (fugu) are available here.

[Update: No more security updates either] Confirmed: The Nexus Player will not be updated to Android P

When the Android P Developer Preview was announced, there were several Google devices that didn't have any images available for download: the Nexus 5X, the Nexus 6P, the Pixel C, and the Nexus Player. Google confirmed that the first three in those list would not get Android P, but nothing was said about the Nexus Player then.

Android P drops support for Nexus 5X/6P, Pixel C, and possibly Nexus Player

Wednesday, March 7th, 2018

The Nexus 5X and 6P were released in October 2015, and ended up being the last devices under the Nexus brand. The following year, Google released the original Pixel, marking an end to the company's lineup of affordable devices. Google has now confirmed to Ars Technica that Android P will drop support for the 5X and 6P, along with the infamous Pixel C tablet.

The 5X and 6P still have a large development scene, so there's no doubt custom ROMs will continue delivering major updates to both phones.

[Update: Rolling out] Google finally preparing a fix for Nexus Player remote sleep bug from last November

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2018

Since late last November, Nexus Player owners have had the frustrating experience of erratic behavior from the remote. After about 5 to 10 minutes, the remote would seemingly go to sleep. Pressing any button causes the remote to blink for a few seconds, then hopefully reconnect. While not precisely broken, the erratic functionality from the remote has been a point of pain for owners of Google's streaming hockey puck.

Android TV streaming boxes: an uneasy start and apparent death

Sunday, January 21st, 2018

Android TV is very much alive, as was made abundantly clear by the plethora of new Android TV powered televisions with Google Assistant capability shown off at CES 2018. Streaming boxes powered by Android TV, however, are conspicuously missing—the last Android TV set-top box to be released in the United States was the Xiaomi Mi Box in October 2016.

Apple TV and Amazon's Fire TV products both received hardware refreshes last September, while Roku products received hardware refreshes in October.
