Android Central Podcast
The Android podcast for everyone. A weekly show about Android, Google, and the best of mobile technology. Hosted by Daniel Bader.

Google's CEO testified before the United States Congress House Judiciary Committee along with the leaders of Facebook, Apple, and Amazon. Jerry, Andrew, and Daniel evaluate the hearing and possible outcomes.

They also engage in a significant amount of phone talk, thanks to leaks about the upcoming Galaxy Note 20. Huawei supplants Samsung as the world's largest smartphone maker (at least for now), and Qualcomm is very successful despite the pandemic.

And in our new tradition, we close out the episode by sharing what's making us happy. What's making you happy? Let us know on Twitter, the web, or via email!

Jason Howell of "All About Android" and many other shows on the TWiT network joins Jerry and Daniel to examine all the new features in Android 11 Beta 2. They also talk about Microsoft's first foray into an Android phone, the Surface Duo. It's certain to be a niche product, but will it be too niche? And for that matter, will it be any good? This episode is chock full of Google-y goodness!

Russell Holly joins Daniel and Jerry for a chat about Google's purchase of AR glasses company North. Dell's new Chromebooks with 10th Gen Intel processors could gain Steam support, which could help win the hearts and minds of gamers.

Qualcomm's new Snapdragon Wear 4100 is on the way. The company says it could provide an 85% performance boost to Wear OS smartwatches, with 25% better battery life. The gang are skeptical but optimistic about these claims.

The OnePlus Nord is now official. It's a strange name for an interesting phone that will sadly not be available in North America.

Finally, Daniel introduces a new segment to the show: "What's Making Us Happy"!
