Android 15 Talkback Updates

Today on the show, Steven and Shaun discuss the latest innovations from Google at their Made By Google Event held on the 4th of October.

There’s a lot of excitement in the mainstream press about the new Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro phones, in particular, because of their stunning new camera arrays, but what is the big attraction to consumers who are blind? Also, the new Pixel Watch 2 was announced but will it be fast and responsive enough for us Talkback users?

Plus there’s more of your feedback including a demand for us all to slow down a bit, and a rather interesting confusion around the acronym LOL.
