Welcome back to another week of the Android Police Podcast. To catch us live on Hangouts On Air every Thursday at 5:30PM PST (subject to change as per the calendar widget below), just head over to androidpolice.com/podcast. For the unedited video show, click here. As always, we'll take your questions at 530-HELLO-AP and also at our email address: podcast at androidpolice dot com.

This week's show features an overview of new Android Wear 5.1 features, Android 5.1 OTA news, I/O rumors including Android "M," a review of the Watch Urbane, and some general lamenting about Lollipop.

This week's podcast is brought to you by Reflector 2, a pretty amazing piece of software that turns your Windows or OS X computer into a virtual Chromecast / Cast receiver. You can mirror your Android 4.4+ device's screen directly to your computer just like you would with a Chromecast using the official Chromecast app - just install Reflector 2 on your PC and you'll be ready to go. Reflector 2 also works with AirPlay for iOS device mirroring, and we've got an exclusive discount code (really, you won't get it any cheaper anywhere else). Just enter "androidpolice51" as your promo code during checkout to save $5 (33%) on an individual Windows or Mac license. You can also try it out for free for 7 days.
