In this bonus episode, Cherlynn and Devindra dive into the biggest I/O news: Google’s intriguing Project Astra AI assistant; new models for creating video and images; and some improvements to Gemini AI. While some of the announcements seem potentially useful, it’s still tough to tell if the move towards AI will actually help consumers, or if Google is just fighting to stay ahead of OpenAI.
