Flo joins the chat with Ron Richards, Mishaal Rahman, and Huyen Tue Dao to breakdown the latest from Google coming out of the Pixel 8 event and all the surprises, drama, Artificial Intelligence drinking game and underrated announcements that goes along with it. So much so that Huyen gets a little salty...watch out!

Made by Google/Pixel 8 Event recap, A little about Android vs Pixel branding, Pixel Secure Face Unlock is a gamechanger, as is the Ultra HDR in Android 14, Google's pledge for 7 years of updates, Samsung trying to get involved in the action, Assistant with Bard is a for real life thing, Google wins over Sonos and the Patron Pick is the Pixel 8 teardown video.
