The interview can be seen below, in its entirety, in a virtual room with numerous spectators, or in this case listener, attentive to every word of the technology visionary.

Bill Gates uses an Android smartphone, revealed at Clubhouse
Above we have the republication of the interview given by Bill Gates to Sorkin through the Clubhouse. The conversation came up with several themes such as their friendship and competition with the late Steve Jobs, Apple's iconic leader and responsible for the iPhone.
It should be noted that the interview served as a motto for the promotion of his new book – How to avoid a climate disaster. Bill Gates' new work warns of the potentially disastrous consequences of climate change, as well as the COVID-19 pandemic.
Returning to the heart of this article, Gates also had the opportunity to talk a little about Android and why he preferred this platform.
“In fact, I use an Android phone. I do it because I want to be aware of everything and I also casually explore the iPhone, but the one I take with me every day turns out to be an Android phone,” said the philanthropist.
The opening of the Android system and Microsoft applications are among the reasons cited by Gates
Among the reasons given to justify his choice, Gates stated that he finds in the Android system a greater opening of the ecosystem, in addition to Microsoft apps already being pre-installed on many of these phones and tablets. This is the main reason.
The journalist takes the opportunity to deepen the demonstration of preference of Gates for Android, trying to probe a possible rivalry with the founder of Apple. Bill Gates circumvented the issue, but gave more reasons for his preference.
“Some of the Android manufacturers install Microsoft software at the factory so that this simplifies my choice. They are more flexible in terms of their software and the way it connects with the operating system. That's why I ended up getting more used to Well, a lot of my friends have an iPhone, so there’s no purity.
Bill Gates embarrassed the Clubhouse manager
Finally, note that the interview was broadcast through Clubhouse, the social network of the moment and exclusive to iOS. In addition to needing an invitation to join the Clubhouse, we also need an iPhone.
In the face of Bill Gates' preference for Android, Clubhouse co-founder Paul Davidson tried to justify himself by confirming that the creation of the Android app was “a top priority” within the company.
The development of a solution for Android is thus confirmed.
