Content warning before you dive into this episode: we may end up spoiling Santa Claus if your little ones are in attendance.

Flo tosses in her digression card early on in the show, while Andy steers us back on track with why it's so hard to commit to one app in this day and age. After the first break, the two discuss the Department of Justice's probe into Google's FitBit acquisition and why it seems to be a bigger deal than everything else involving digital data. We'll profile biologist Frances Arnold, who recently joined Alphabet's Board of Directors, and we'll run down the new features of the latest Pixel Feature Drop. We'll also update you on a few new features coming to the Google Assistant.
