The Nexus Q, unveiled at this year's I/O conference to a somewhat unsure audience, is a device that looks to unify your living room's media experience, allowing the streaming of all your Play Store content to connected speakers and TVs, while also allowing for remote control from your (or your friends') Android devices.

One of the Nexus Q's main claims to fame is that it allows anyone in the room to connect and share Play Store content quickly and easily. Until today, however, Google's Nexus Q app was incompatible with devices not running Android's latest iteration – 4.1 Jelly Bean.

Today's update fixed that, though, opening compatibility to all devices running 2.3.3 Gingerbread and later. The update evidently also includes improvements to the Q's "social mix" feature.


In other Q-related news, Google's official YouTube app also got an update which brought with it Nexus Q support, along with bugfixes and YouTube's  "remote" feature for devices running versions of Android earlier than 4.0. Those of you who have already picked up a Nexus Q need only click through the appropriate widget below to update.
