Nexus Player makes its exit from the Google Store

Google is no longer directly selling the Nexus Player, its premiere Android TV set-top box that launched alongside Google's second (and more successful) attempt at entering the living room.

If you visit the Google Store now, the Nexus Player is no longer listed under the TV & Audio section, and its direct link no longer works either. Meanwhile, the Nexus Player remains out of stock across online retail outlets, so your best bet for securing one now would be in-store.

Regardless, if you are interested in getting your hands on an Android TV-powered set-top box, you have arguably much better options. Xiaomi recently announced plans to launch a 4K Android TV box of its own, and NVIDIA's Shield Android TV still remains an impressive option.
