We forgot to take a picture of ourselves
when we recorded this.
Please use your imagination.
In this episode, Chet and Florina Muntenescu (from the Android Developer Relations team) talk with Dom Elliott from the Google Play team about Android App Bundles and other Google Play features.

App bundles are the new packaging format for Android apps. They allow you to upload a single version of your app, then Google Play can distribute optimized versions of that app to users, depending on device-specific capabilities, like the selected locale(s) on the device.

We also talked about other recent Google Play features (related to bundles and not), such as on-demand delivery and in-app updates.
