Joshua Vergara, Joe Hindy, Jonathan Feist and David Imel get together to chat phones, watches and drones in episode 109 of the Android Authority Podcast. We share some final thoughts on Google I/O, but mostly we're talking Android O, which, actually, is little more than an emoji conversation. It's okay David, you'll survive the blobs. DJI has announced a small new drone, the DJI Spark threatens to be the drone that puts drones in mainstream. Wearables rear their head again, we've all used a smart watch and/or a fitness band, but none of them have really stuck, what comes next? Finally, the HTC U11 makes an appearance, talking Edge Sense and more.

It is a very busy time around the Android Authority network, be sure to check in with Charged.io, VRSource.com and SoundGuys.com for some of the latest from our team.

Joshua Vergara is in San Francisco for Google I/O 2017. Taking a couple days to let it all sink in, Kris Carlon, Nirave Gondhia, David Imel and Edgar Cervantes join together to chat about the event. Google I/O provided plenty of value to developers, introducing many great new tools that we'll see in products moving forward. Android O was a minor topic directly, but will be the version of the OS that gets all the best in the coming months. Google Photos got a few clever and intuitive (hopefully) additions and Google Assistant got a significant rollout... to iOS.

Google I/O is only days away, so we chat about that for a moment, we ask if you root your phone, because we don't anymore. LG has made a leap in the market, the HTC 10 goes under the microscope again and we generally chat about life and technology.
