Here we are! Another episode of The Vergecast. It’s been a busy week, which means lots for Nilay, Ashley, Dan, and Paul to talk about on the show. Facebook’s F8 developer conference took place this week so there’s lots of weird updates with AR, social VR, and mind reading. “It’s two sci-fis at once,” Paul says.
And of course, the Galaxy S8 has been reviewed! Dan gives us his first-hand impressions, what his favorite features are, and whether he prefers it over the iPhone and the Pixel.
And wow there’s a whole bunch of other stuff we talked about so listen through it all to keep feeding your brain.
29:25 – Facebook F8 conference 2017
54:23 – Paul’s weekly segment “One day, not so far away, it may be possible for me to think in Mandarin and for you to feel instantly in Spanish”
