O ye developers arise and hearken to Google’s call! Google I/O comes up on May 11th and 12th!
Every year, Google gathers developers in one place and tells them about what it is cooking up regarding its operating systems. The event is known as Google I/O and the dates of the next edition have been officially confirmed; 11th and 12th of May.
This year’s event will be online again, but Google will transmit from the Shoreline Amphitheatre, as shown in a message by the CEO, Sundar Pichai, on Twitter. It won’t be the first time Google has used the venue. Pichai tweeted, “We’ll be back live from Shoreline Amphitheatre for this year’s #GoogleIO! Join us online May 11-12 http://io.google”
There will be few attendees physically in the audience, expected to be made up of employees and select partners. However, registration for this year’s Google I/O is free, meaning anybody with an internet connection can attend, provided they register.
Google says registration will start at some point this month, and you can keep checking their website so you can claim your virtual spot.
Last year’s edition was also online, and Google made some big announcements, including the unveiling of Android 12’s “Material You” design, updates on Google Workspace, and the merging of Google’s Wear OS and Samsung’s Tizen. Google I/O was canceled in 2020, thanks to the pandemic.
Exactly what Google will talk about this year remains unknown, but as the company has already released the Android 13 preview, we expect it to speak at length about the upcoming update.
Of course, we will be the first to bring you everything that happens at the event. Also, stay tuned for any development as the event approaches.
