Android Central Podcast
The Android Central Podcast, brought to you by AndroidCentral.com.

There's no such thing as a slow week in the Android world. And in the span of a single morning we've gotten both the nickname for Android N — Nougat — and a long-overdue unlocked version of the Samsung Galaxy S7 in the United States. 

Plus we weigh in on some recent stories that probably have been blown way out of proportion, and we answer some excellent questions via email. 

Thanks to this week's sponsors:

What's it like to run Android on a Chromebook? Phil and Jerry have all the answers to be had so far, as we take a look at the first developer build. 

Plus the Samsung Gear 360 has been put through its paces. It's pretty darn good, but still has some room for improvement. 

Plus we catch up on the latest batch of emails. Send yours to podcast at androidcentral dot com!

We've done podcasts in all sorts of conditions, but this is the first that's been interrupted by a tornado. Find out if Jerry survived! (He did.) See if he woke up in Oz wearing a pair of ruby slippers! (Wouldn't be the first time.)

But more important, we catch up on a whole lot of YOUR questions about all things recent goings on of Android. This is a must-listen show!!!

We take one last spin around Google I/O with an actual developer — Mike Wolfson, the coder behind the Android Central App (among other things). Plus we get more insight from a couple folks who were able to stay out of the Silicon Valley sun.

ICYMI: Episodes 288 and 289 were our LIVE Google I/O editions. Don't miss 'em!

We warned you. And it's come true. This year's Google I/O was so big, it demanded a two-part podcast! And this here is Part 2!

For the next 90 minutes (yep) we'll wrap up more on Google's VR play (called Daydream), Android apps running on Chrome OS, more on Android Auto — and, yes, what worked (and what didn't) on the first Google I/O at Shoreline Amphitheater.

And you can find all of our Google I/O 2016 coverage here!

We're coming at you live from Google I/O 2016! It's Google's annual developer conference where we not only learn about upcoming consumer-facing products and services for things like Android and Chrome and VR — developers get to learn how to start using them! 

And because there's so much awesomeness going on this week, we're going to do TWO podcasts to recap it all. Part 1 covers the keynote address and all the major news from the first day of the event, like Allo and Duo, Google Home and Google Assistant, and Daydream, Google's new VR effort.

You can find all of our Google I/O 2016 coverage here!

Stay tuned for Part 2!
