The battle for the best media streaming device is definitely heating up, and today Google is upping the ante by announcing their own TV device, the Nexus Player, running the gorgeous new Android TV interface. We’ve been working closely with Google since before the platform was announced back in April, and we’ve continued to hone our app to ensure that it feels at home on Android TV, and that you get to enjoy the world class Plex experience that you know and love on your favorite new device.
We’re really enjoying the fresh take that Android TV brings to the table: bold, clean UI designed from the ground up for “lean back” viewing from your couch, and custom home screen recommendations based on your viewing habits are right up our alley, and they mean that Plex and Android TV are a perfect fit.
Feast your eyes on these gorgeous pixels, mortals, and welcome your new media overlord!
Edit: Barkley—along with many of you—expressed outrage that he was missing from a release post. He called his agent, his agent called his lawyer, we had a big conference call, and thankfully everything was resolved (in his favor, naturally). Feast on those big brown eyes!
