      BTW notifications are tiny, at the bottom, and don’t create icons in the status bar

      Second Opinion #26: Nexus Player Post-Mortem


      Pros

      * Google Cast built in
      * Hockey puck look isn’t bad – nice and low-profile
      * Remote

      * Good for old people who can’t understand casting
      * Bluetooth doesn’t need line-of-sight


      * Can install apps/games from Google Play or APKs
      * When you start casting, it can command your TV to turn on and switch input to Nexus Player
      * Photo slideshow it shows as a screensaver is quite pleasant
