Google has cut the price of the Nexus Player to $79

Back in October, Google announced the Nexus Player as one of the showcase devices for Android 5.0 Lollipop, alongside the Nexus 6 smartphone and Nexus 9 tablet. Designed for accessing apps and services through your TV, it went on sale for $99, but just a few months after going on sale, Google has now dropped the price of the ASUS-built device.

The Nexus Player is now available from the Google Store for $79, a $20 reduction on its original price. The price cut was applied without fanfare, and with no official announcement, and while it's not yet clear if the reduction is temporary, there are no indications on the company's site that this is a short-term discount, which suggests that it may well be permanent.

The price drop comes just ahead of Google's I/O developer conference this week, at which it will unveil the latest version of its Android OS, currently known as the 'M' release.

However, while the new lower price is already live on the Google Store US site, the discount hasn't yet reached the UK. The Nexus Player went on sale in the UK two months ago, priced at £79, and at time of publication, its price there remained unchanged.
