QNAP TAS-168: QTS Embraces Android

The first & only QTS-Android Combo NAS, Limitless application and infinite fun!


After Thunderbolttm NAS and Qtiertm Technology, QNAP continues innovating with the unprecedented QTS & Androidtm dual-system NAS - TAS-168/268. IT's a superb NAS allowing unlimited applications for moden digital lifestyles.

QTS-Android Combo NAS

The TAS-168/268 is the first NAS featuring dual systems - QTS and Android™. Both systems share the same storage database, so all your media files and documents can be accessed from QTS and Android™ simultaneously. You can use QNAP’s Qfile app to upload photos and enjoy them on HDMI display through Android™. Similarly, files downloaded from Android™ can be managed and shared through the QTS OS. With simple and efficient file storage combined with rich media playback applications, experience the power of the QTS-Android Combo NAS with the TAS-168/268!tas-combo-system en

Terabytes of storage capacity

The TAS-168/268 supports terabytes of storage capacity to accommodate large photo, music and video collections. Unlike other Android™ devices with constrictive storage capacities, you can download as many apps as you want to without worrying about running out of space.tas-large-storage

Plug in a keyboard, mouse and monitor, and everything is ready for you.

By simply plugging in a keyboard, mouse and HDMI display, you can directly manage, edit and play files stored on the TAS-168/268 without needing an additional PC. On the HDMI display you will find your familiar Android™ interface. The Android™ experience is your TAS experience, and you can find how handy it is. You can directly control the Android™ interface with the free QNAP remote control to play media, easily fast-forward, pause or return to a playing video from another screen.

Note: The QNAP remote control supports Kodi and YouTube for TV, and most Android apps for TV. Usage may be limited due to how an app was designed.tas-use-immediately-with-mouse-keyboard-screen

Google Play & Qmarket for unlimited apps

The TAS-168/268’s Android™ system provides Google Play™ store and Qmarket. You can find various music, movies, books, and Android™ apps and games on Google Play, and also download QNAP apps and access other app marketplaces from Qmarket. The combination of two app-centric systems allows you to enjoy infinite applications and fun.
Note: The TAS-168/268 is designed for lightweight home and entertainment applications, and may not work smoothly for CPU/GPU-heavy applications, such as Android video calls, 3D graphics or large games and apps.


Sync with your Google® account

The TAS-168/268 has been completely certified by Google® and can synchronize with your Google® accounts. All the Google® files and settings based on your Gmail™ account can be synchronized and backed up to the TAS-168/268. You do not have to do any settings again. Backup and sync for contact lists and files are very convenient.tas-google-account-sync

TAS plus NAS to fulfill more tasks

In addition to working independently, the TAS-168/268 can also be used with another QNAP NAS to handle more applications. QTS RTRR/rsync functions can help back up files on the TAS-168/268 to another NAS, securing data with double protection. With another NAS (with QTS 4.2 or later), you can use File Station to directly mount shared folders from a remote TAS-168/268 by FTP, WebDAV, and CIFS/SMB. Various VPN apps available in Google Play™ can help stream media contents from blocked sites, or create a secure OpenVPN tunnel between the TAS-168/268 and another NAS to process remote backup tasks.tas-nas-combo-rtrr-rsync

Android Station eases remote security management

You can log in to QTS OS via web browser, and use Android Station app to remotely control the status of the TAS-168/268’s Android™ system. Even you are away from home or office, you can easily manage the TAS-168/268 to protect your data.tas-android-station
