Android Central 308: The Andromeda Strain on Google

 

Audio-only stream below

What is Andromeda? And how does it fit into Google’s Android and ChromeOS strategies?

This week, Alex, Jerry, Daniel, and Flo talk about the Google event happening on October 4, and how Google’s Pixel phones need something truly special to make a mark on the industry in ways the Nexuses never could. Speaking of which, what exactly is that Andromeda thing that leaked?

And BlackBerry is no longer making its own phones. Is that a big deal when the company pledged years ago to be a software company first?

Finally, Android Wear 2.0 has been delayed. Boo! But its scope is much bigger than when it first debuted earlier this year, so when smartwatches finally are released with it, we’ll actually have some pretty cool new stuff to look forward to.
