New Edge features, Pixel phones, and more - Episode 1 of the Neowin Podcast is now live!

Welcome to the first full episode of the Neowin Podcast, where Rich Woods and João Carrasqueira talk about all the latest news from the past week. And it's been a busy one, with both Microsoft and Google hosting their developer-oriented events, Build and I/O. The Redmond company had a lot of news for the new Chromium-based Edge, as well as improvements to Cortana and Microsoft 365. Google announced its mid-range Pixel 3a and 3a XL phones, released new Android Q betas for more devices, and more.
