With the Nexus Q no longer in stock on the Google Play Store, it looks like Google thought now would be a good time to go ahead and update several of the apps the Nexus Q supports in preparation for those who will be getting their units. Previously, the apps were locked down to devices running Jelly Bean for support on the Nexus Q but not any longer. YouTube was updated, along with Play Movies & TV and now, the Nexus Q app can be installed on phones and tablets running earlier system versions of Android to support the Nexus Q.
