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

Why the heck is LG releasing the V20, and why does it appear to look like a larger, more boxy G5? Andrew, Russell and Daniel explore the potential reasons for LG's latest flagship, and whether its new design will appeal to anyone beyond the Android audience looking for speeds and feeds.

Plus: Russell got a Moto Z and likes it — a lot! And an IFA primer, including a discussion of the Gear S3 and Moto 360 3rd generation.

Plus, plus: Twitter Q&A!

The Android Central Podcast has reached a special milestone — 300 episodes! Thanks for joining us through the years!

This week, it's all about the Galaxy Note 7. Alex, Andrew, Jerry, and Daniel chat about Samsung's latest big phone, and how it stacks up to the competition.

And there's also a new Android version coming out soon — Nougat. But will its release look a bit different than in previous years?

Three weeks of Moto Z in a row? It's almost as if someone was dragging out the release of this phone for more coverage. But we go where the news takes us. And this week we've got our official review of the Moto Z and Moto Z Force (plus more on when it's actually available), the end of PokeCivilization as we know it, and we tackle more of your emails and voicemails.

We're on the road this week, with Phil and MrMobile himself — the one and only Michael Fisher — attending Verizon's Moto Z Droid event. We've got a few new nuggets out of that one, and a few things we have to wait a little longer for.

Pokémon Go is everywhere. It brings together a part of our childhoods and smashes is right into The Future, thanks to our smartphones. There's a pretty good chance that you could step out onto any public street in America and find someone playing it. And the rest of the world is coming soon.

So we took a half-hour to catch up on what all the fuss is about. There's a LOT going on here. If you're trying to figure out what Pokémon Go is, or whether it's something you'll want to play, you don't want to miss this. 

You can catch up on all of our Pokémon Go stories here!

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!!!
