After releasing a plethora of new hardware yesterday, Google has decided to remove multiple other products from the Google Store to make room for the new arrivals…
The best gifts for Android users
The first devices are pretty obvious: the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P. With the Pixel phones taking their place, and Google no longer producing products with the Nexus name, it only makes sense to remove those listings.
Also gone are the majority of Google’s VR headsets. The Goggle Tech C1-Glass VR Viewer is gone, as is the Mattel View-Master VR Starter Pack. That leaves only the original Google Cardboard and the new Daydream View.
In the streaming section, Google has also, quite surprisingly I might add, removed the NVIDIA Shield. While 4K lovers will have a new option soon with the Chromecast Ultra, the removal of the Shield means that Android TV is no longer represented in the Google Store, at least, until Google talks Xiaomi into selling the Mi Box there.
Last but not least, Google has removed the Dell Chromebook 13 from the Google Store.
For the time being, you can still get the NVIDIA Shield, View-Master VR, Nexus 5X, and Nexus 6P on Amazon. Google’s previous Nexus devices also still available on Project Fi, although they probably won’t remain there much longer. If you’re looking to grab the Dell Chromebook 13 (which I can still personally vouch for), it’s still available through Dell’s site, at least for now.
