What's better than one podcast from Google I/O 2016? How about the first of TWO podcasts from Google I/O 2016.

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!

Android Central 288: Google I/O 2016 (Part 1)


Did all of your video equipment get stolen, or did someone detonate an EMP? It's been 7 weeks since a podcast video.

No equipment needed far video just need to use hangouts which is very very easy :)

Well I think the bigger problem is having people that are able to do the video stuff.

People complain bitterly about poor audio which is part of the reason for not doing video now, then when people don't have good cameras then people will complain about that

Don't know about this podcast But I see that Russell Holly's video works just fine over at TWiT's I/O special! :) Couldn't help but rag on Phil again this week.

Just don't listen to the cast if you don't like the audio only. Phil says not many people watched it. If enough people stopped listening I am sure they'd go back to video.

The whole focusing on audio quality is a bunch of **** too, lol.

Still no video?

What year is this? Don't you realize you this is where you should put the emphasis on?

This is like a putting on a food show... On the radio.

You sure can't blame the available internet bandwidth this time.

I admit I really want to see Duo make a big splash this year. And the AC team made the best case for that see-whose-calling preview yet: that it stabilizes the video connection before you swipe into the call.

Great podcast. Slight correction. Allo is the Russian way of answering the phone. Have never heard anyone use allo to greet each other in person.
