Google Fiber app launches in the Play Store, compatible with more than just the Nexus 7

March 16, 2013

google-fiberKansas City residents with Google Fiber: Google is improving your Fiber experience by offering you its Google Fiber app on more devices than just the Nexus 7 you received with your service package.

As noted in the change log, the app has a “re-designed user interface for simpler browse, search and discover your favorite content”. Google also added better Wi-Fi connectivity to the app and made it compatible with devices running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean or higher. It works with both tablets and phones whereas it only worked on the Nexus 7 tablet previously.

The app turns your phone into a remote allowing you to surf through shows and movies that are currently live, recorded on your  DVR and available on-demand. If you’re one of the few lucky people to have Google Fiber, head on over to the Play Store and give this app a download.

    I use a nexus 4 and got the information inside the Play Store that this app is incompatible with my device.

      I assume you live in Germany. In that case, yes it is incompatible with your device; Google Fiber is a service, at the time of this writing, only available in Kansas City, MO, which is in the U.S.

        Kansas City Kansas, not Missouri. A very select part of Kansas City, MO will get it AFTER Kansas City Kansas.
        Luckily, I am one of the fortunate to live in Kansas City,KS and will have my Google Fiber in a couple of months.
