Nexus Player Pulled From Google Play Store Over FCC Certification (Read Below).

It’s been a rollercoaster day for Google fans: first, the new Nexus Player and Nexus 9 pre-orders went live on the Play Store; but just a couple of hours later, Google’s set-top box was pulled, apparently because of its lack of FCC certification.

As Android Police points out, the Nexus Player’s page on the Play Store now features a tagline buried at the bottom of the page, saying that the device is not approved by the FCC, and therefore can’t be sold in the US, yet. For the moment, it’s stuck with an ‘out of inventory‘ message.

The FCC tests most electronic devices sold in the US for electromagnetic interference, whether that’s keeping deliberate emissions (like the Bluetooth or Wi-Fi that the Nexus Player is packing) in check, or just ensuring that there’s no untoward electromagnetic noise being generated. Hopefully, this is just an issue of timing, and not a legitimate issue with the Nexus Player that’s delaying clearance from the men in suits – it would be a shame if Google’s best play for the living room was sunk on a technicality.
