Android Central Podcast
Your weekly destination for the best of Android, Google and how mobile tech shapes the world!

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!

It's a special Cinco de Mayo podcast! By which we mean we're recording on May 5th. First up — we check in on a number of excellent voicemail questions, including what's up with Android Auto these days, more on adoptable storage back backing up your data, and whether the Nexus 9 should best be forgotten at this point.

Plus we dive into the latest scary (or not) story about Google, Android and hacking, and catch up on the latest in Chromebooks.

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.

Phil, Jerry, Andrew and Russell gather 'round the fire to discuss anything and everything LG G5. The good. The not-so-good. And whether you should actually consider buying this phone.

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.

It's one of those weird times in which we're completely excited to be playing with things that aren't quite ready for prime time (OK, aren't at ALL ready for prime time), but have to remember that pre-production is still pre-production. So this week we catch up on where things stand with the Android N Developer Preview, we've got an early LG G5 in house, and we'll answer more of your questions live on air.
