Here are some highlights from today's AMA with Andy Rubin and the Essential team

AMAs on reddit are a good way for tech companies to communicate with fans and potential customers and answer any concerns they may have. Of course, not all of them go well, but if you're honest and respond to important questions, it's easy enough to do.

Google's Android O engineering team hosted a Reddit AMA, here's what they had to say

With a recent example of how not to do a Reddit AMA still fresh in the mind courtesy of OnePlus, yesterday was Google's turn to show us how it's done. A long list of key personnel from the Android engineering team took to r/androiddev to answer questions from the community regarding the upcoming release of Android O. As you'd expect, the team remained coy about a number of things they're simply not yet allowed to speak about, but they did have some interesting things to say. Here are some of the highlights.

We Are Hosting An AMA With Disqus Next Friday, April 29th At 11AM Pacific, And You Are Invited

Disqus has been our comment and discussion platform of choice here at Android Police for just over four years. In that time, over a million comments have been made by you, our readers. I think I can speak for the entire AP team when I say that reading comments threads on the articles we write, particularly when they are witty or insightful, is one of the highlights of this job.

HTC Announces HTC Preview, A Program To Get Input From Users On Upcoming Software And Devices

HTC is at something of a crossroads right now. After the disappointing performance of the One M9 earlier this year and steadily declining revenue, the company is launching the HTC Preview program.
