Google is rolling out a string of updates today, particularly for its Nexus Q, YouTube app, and Play Movies & TV apps. So what’s exactly new with the Nexus Q app? Version 188.8.131.526084 now supports earlier system versions of Android as well as improvements to the social mix (guest mode) feature. The YouTube app, on the other hand, is now updated to support Nexus Q on Android 4.0 and above devices, as well earlier versions of Android.
This means that you can now turn your good old smartphone into a remote control to play your favorite YouTube videos on other devices. And as for the Google Play Movies & TV app, apart from a few bug fixes, the newly updated version has been tweaked to allow faster downloads. Google is also addressing a reported playback failure on some LG devices with the update. The updates aren’t that huge, but these baby steps will eventually turn into giant leaps in the long run – hopefully.
