The Nexus Player is a Google's own-branded Android TV device. It's a flattened out, circular black box that connects to your TV over HDMI and works for watching media, Google Casting content and games with an optional game controller. It doesn't have the highest-end specs inside, but it has more than enough to handle Android TV and you can't beat the size either. Its running a 1.8GHz Intel Atom CPU with a PowerVR GPU, along with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. It connects to your home network over Wifi, and the remote connects to the box over Bluetooth.
