Android Central Podcast
The Android podcast for everyone. A weekly show about the Android world and Google’s influence in it.

This week, Daniel Bader, Andrew Martonik, and Jerry Hildenbrand are joined by Mr. Mobile himself, Michael Fisher, to talk about Samsung’s dominance in the Android phone market, a hypothetical Galaxy Note Pro, and LG’s most recent earnings.

In addition, the crew dives deep into the newly announced Moto Z2 Force by analyzing its place within the Moto product range and upper echelon of smartphones. All that, plus Android O Dev Preview 4, the Emperor’s new gadget, and more!

This week, we invited our homebody friends, Mikah Sargent and Phil Nickinson, to chat about smart homes and how they're changing the way we live.

Should you buy a Google Home or an Echo or, if you're into Apple, should you wait for the HomePod, which is hatching later this year? And what about ecosystems and standards? What *is* a Zigbee, anyway? All of these questions are answered — or at least acknowledged — and more!

There isn't a lot going on right now, but somehow Andrew, Daniel and Jerry still manage to fill 90 minutes of hot takes.

Most of that time is spent talking about Google's showdown with the European Commission on Android's dominant position in the market, while the rest is spent between talking about Motorola's strange smartphone strategy, and why Amazon would make a pretty damn good carrier.

Action Launcher is one of the most popular launchers on the Play Store, and it just received its biggest update in years. So what better time to bring on its owner and chief developer, Chris Lacy, for a chat about its past, its present and its future? 

Right now, by the way. The time is right now.
