Nexus Player pre-orders may not be delayed after all now that the device has been officially approved by the FCC. The news comes just hours after Google was forced to stop taking orders through Google Play. Google opened Nexus Player pre-orders on Friday after officially announcing the device alongside the Nexus 6 and the Nexus 9.
Well, that didn’t take long. Just a couple of days after Google stopped pre-orders of the Nexus Player while it waited for the FCC’s all-clear, its Android TV puck has received approval. There aren’t any surprises in the regulatory filing, but it should let you both pre-order the WiFi media hub soon and (hopefully) get it around that originally promised November 3rd release date. If you were worried that you’d have to make do with a Chromecast for a little while longer, you can relax.
