It’s Google I/O week, and that gave us a lot to talk about, so we’ve grabbed two of the nation’s most experienced Android writers; Ausdroid’s Jason Murray and EFTM’s Dan Tyson to talk everything Android and Google and more.

What new hardware did Google show off at Google I/O? Which manufacturers are first on the Android 12 Beta Train? Can Adam get his favourite San Francisco restaurants to deliver to Australia via Uber Eats?

How has Google made its Android Camera app less racist? How can a camera app detect skin conditions? Can we really trust Google when it says it wants to adopt a “privacy first” attitude?

All this and more in an extra-special-length episode of Vertical Hold!

Plus puppies. Lots of puppies.

Alex also wrote up the Google I/O conference, because he doesn’t believe in sleep, and you can read all about that over at Finder.
