Android Central Podcast (podcasts)
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:

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!

After a few wild weeks on the road we're back with even more new hardware — the Huawei P9, for one, and the new Android Wear MODE bands for another. Plus the Nextbit Robin has received a major update and is better than ever, someone drops an F-bomb, and we see if podcasts on Google Play Music are anything to fuss over.

The HTC 10 is here! We've been waiting with bated breath for the newest phone from the Taiwanese manufacturer, as it's been some 14 months since the last flagship release. Expectations are high. Excitement has been building. And we've got a whole bunch of thoughts on the HTC 10. Enjoy.

Namaste.

281: Butts are still funny

We recruited three of the most attractive minds in mobile tech for an all-questions, all-answers episode. When they couldn't show up, we brought in Jerry, Phil and Russell to run things. This is nearly 90 minutes of your questions, and our answers — on so many Android topics. Strap. In.

This week on the Greatest Android Podcast in the world we take on Pornhub's arrival to 360-degree video and mobile VR. (For those of you who listen with kids around, that's not until the back half of the show, and there is good warning beforehand.) Plus, HTC's finally almost nearly ready to eventually show us its next flagship smartphone — and we answer more of your questions on air!

And coming up next week: We're planning an all-Q&A show. So record your question and send it to podcast at androidcentral dot com — or just do a traditional email if that's your thing.

We're expecting Mobile World Congress to be so crazy this year that we're starting our official preview a week early. This week we take a look at the latest Samsung Galaxy S7 leakage, take a look at what LG itself is already putting out about LG G5, and we answer more of your emails and voicemails live on air. (And we're happy to announce that we managed to not cause any divorces last week!)
