Google H840 media streamer hits the FCC to replace the Nexus Q

Google's Nexus Q media streamer was short-lived, and canceled shortly after being revealed at last years Google I/O event. With no word on a replacement at this years show, we're now seeing its successor hit the FCC. A new Google device branded as H840 DEVICE has cleared the FCC this week (product code H2G2-42, an apparent play on The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy) and it has our interest piqued.

Google Nexus Q to be a no show at Google I/O

Completely overpriced and randomly announced last year was the short-lived debut of the Google Nexus Q media device. After being announced nearly a year ago at I/O 2012, then later canceled, we were hoping for some sort of rebound device or revamped Nexus Q this year. Sadly it sounds like that won't be happening. At least according to a few anonymous sources.

Google Nexus Q banished from Nexus landing page

If you've been waiting for Google to reintroduce the poorly-executed Nexus Q media streaming device, we've got some bad news for you. Google has removed the device from its Nexus landing page, which suggests that it may not be coming back anytime soon. In fact, Google may have decided to pull the plug entirely, as the Nexus landing page is now only populated by the Nexus 4, Nexus 7, and Nexus 10.

Google updates YouTube and Nexus Q apps

Google has issued a set of updates for multiple applications today, and a few were worth mentioning. First up was Google Movies & TV, but that wasn't anything special. The important ones are YouTube and the Nexus Q companion app. YouTube was updated to version 4.0 for ICS+ devices, same goes for many older devices too. Along with both updates YouTube now fully supports the Nexus Q.
