Friday is near. That means the end of the work week for many of us, the beginning of the weekend, almost Saturday, nearly Sunday — and more important, it's time for the Android Central Podcast!

This week we'll talk about the FUD of Chrome and microphones, the Sony Xperia Z1s is now available, T-Mobile wants to be a bank or something, the Moto X gets wood, and Beats Music is now available.

Plus, we'll be answering your questions live in the Hangout Q&A. So hit up this link Friday at 4 p.m. EST (that's 1 p.m. on the west coast and 9 p.m. in London) and we'll see you there!
