Made by Google, a new podcast about designing hardware
Have you ever wondered what goes into the design of your phone camera? How to keep your personal information secure on your mobile device? Or what it means to build a sustainable tech device?
Our new Made by Google podcast starts with questions like these to explore the latest thinking and design ideas behind Google devices.
As a former broadcast journalist, I’m excited to pick up my microphone again and talk to my fellow Googlers to explore the how, what and why of topics such as phone cameras, security, sustainability, smart homes and wearable devices.
The first episode, out today, asks how the phone camera went from a fairly useless feature to one of the most important tools we all rely on daily. I talk to Isaac Reynolds, a Pixel camera product manager, about the evolution of the phone camera and what he predicts for the future. Along the way, we get into selfies, geek out about video, and talk about our favourite features in the brand new Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro. Isaac happens to be a professional photographer, and offers some unexpected photography insights and tips.

Next time we’ll be getting the answers to questions about mobile security: Do we actually need to worry about cyber criminality? How does Google design devices to protect the people who use them? What steps do we need to take to protect ourselves?
