It's another week of the Material podcast, and Flo is incredibly tired. Andy tells the tale of how he lost his Pixel 4 review unit and then found it again—it's a relatable parable. Afterward, we talk about how Chrome OS is strutting its stuff at this year's CES. We'll also run through Google's latest updates for the Assistant, and we offer Sundar Pichai a little advice on tweeting.
