    Talkin' Developer Tools With Google - Matthew McCullough and J. Eason, Pixel loyalty problem, Gboard

    Talkin' Developer Tools With Google - Matthew McCullough and J. Eason, Pixel loyalty problem, Gboard

    Interview with Matthew McCullough and J. Eason:
    Explain your role as its evolved with Android over the years.
    How does your perspective with the Dev tools team compare to other teams and how you interact with Developers?
    What is the teams perspective on AI in regards to being part of the users experience and the dev experience?
    What is Studio Bot?
    What about how devs/companies may be wary of using Studio Bot, like how Apple and Samsung have banned devs from using ChatGPT?
    Cynical developers might be resistant to this. What's your take on that?
    What is developer reaction to the AI integration inside of Android Studio?
    Have you felt a change in interest or engagement with developers and partners as a whole in relation to larger form factors?
    What has been added to the OS, apis etc that devs can use to build better apps for foldable devices? - What kinds of features are devs NOT integrating for large screens, and they should!
    Can you comment on what "Modern Android" means to the team and how are you prioritizing new features and capabilities with "fixing" issues?
    What are your favorites Android 14 features?
    Google Is Spared a Search-Engine Switch by a Major Partner.
    Google Pixel owners are seemingly more likely to switch brands, and it's not hard to see why.
    Google's Smartphone Loyalty Problem.
    Gboard for Android preps an easier way to 'Resize'.
    JR's tip of the week: AppSales.
    @MishaalRahman: Android 14 prepares to let you save an 'app pair' that launches side-by-side in split-screen mode!
    @MishaalRahman: Hands-on: I finally got this fully working, so here's a full demo of Android 14's new partial screen recording feature.
    @MishaalRahman: If you connect a physical keyboard to a large screen device running Android 14, under Settings > System > Keyboard > Physical keyboard, the "keyboard shortcuts" menu will now show a MUCH more comprehensive list of available keyboard shortcuts, as shown below!
    @MishaalRahman: This feature is indeed live in Android 14 Beta 2! User Nick Cipriani shared this image from their Pixel. Oddly, they received this message while playing audio from their Bluetooth speaker and not headphones.
    @Nail_Sadykov: Looks like Android 14 will finally let you use system navigation while you're dragging & drop items. That is, you can take a photo or text from one app, open another app and drop it there.
    QUICK preview of the OnePlus Pad and Pixel 7a.

Informative and Entertaining

I’ve enjoyed this podcast from day 1. The overall format is great and the wide variety of knowledgeable guests are great. Jason is excellent in interview techniques and offers honest opinions. Ron is a fun co-host who offers interesting perspectives. The third host chair has changed through the years. Currently Flo is also another good voice with some different views on topics to make us think. My ax to grind over the past half a year or so is how much Flo interrupts the guests. These interruptions are often just sarcastic or snide remarks that would turn me off on returning to the show if I were the guest. I like Flo but feel like she needs to have more in manners and professionalism before the quality and variety of guests decline. It is very cringe worth at times and I am sometimes skipping to the next podcast in my cue when she’s on a roll.

Please Compress the Show

I’m a fan of Jason Howell but this show is maybe 30 mins of informative material in a bloated 90 minute blah blah fest. Start by having just one host (Jason) and two regular guests and maybe an extra special guest if they have something specific to add. Bring up the topic at hand (preferably by summarizing and not reading articles), have a good take on it and move on to the next topic. One shouldn’t have to skip repeatedly to get past the blah blah.
