Android P and the Google Assistant Showdown!

Recorded July 26 8:00 ET

Android P’s final beta has hit the airwaves, and Pixels and Nexi are downloading furiously. What does this mean? We’re that much closer to finding out the elusive Android P name - oh and gesture navigation too.

Android O has taken the world by storm - doubling its install base to...10%. This is actually really good news for Android and Android users and we explain why.

In an assistant showdown, Google Assistant reigned supreme in every category except one - and that one is a little weird given what we know about Android and Google.

The Google Pixel has one of the best cameras on the market today, and one of our editors is calling for a better camera app to match. Spoiler alert - not all of use agree that it’s necessary.

And finally, we take an exclusive peek at a new midrange HTC phone. Could this be the HTC U12 Life? It’s very possible and it’s rumored to come at an attractive price too.

All this and more this week on the Android Authority podcast!
