Google's Nexus Q app has been updated to support devices running Android 2.3 and higher.

The Nexus Q app has been emancipated from the sugary hold of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and brought to all devices running Android 2.3 and above as of today's version update. The app serves as the sole control mechanism for the Nexus Q hardware, and this update will broaden the audience of Google's home theater orb to the plethora of devices that aren't a Galaxy Nexus or Nexus 7. Google's YouTube app has also been updated with expanded Nexus Q support for devices running older software. It would seem that Google's breakneck OS update cycle is causing less and less fragmentation, at least within the company's ecosystem, despite Android's expansion into new types of devices. Both updates are available now in the Google Play Store.
