#253: Wear OS By Google Smartwatch Too

April 30th, 2020 · 95 minutes

Andy and Flo have a lot to get off their chests. Flo feels embarrassed for wearing out her Pixelbook, while Andy calls it "brassing." You'll find out why Andy returned his Wear OS watch upon opening the box and why he blew his $20 Google Store credit on a battery pack for the Google Home Mini. Then, we'll discuss the latest reviews of the Pixel Buds and why they probably don't have active noise cancellation. We'll touch on Sundar Pichai's presidential performance on this week's Google earnings call before Andy and Flo rant just a little bit more about Wear OS by Google Smartwatch.
