What you need to know
- Google has published a webpage explaining what to expect at an upcoming I/O event.
- As is customary, the event will begin with a keynote speech by Google CEO Sundar Pichai.
- This year’s Google I/O will take place on Wednesday, May 11.
More than two weeks before Google I/O 2022, Google has published a new webpage teasing the upcoming update, which will be unveiled during the event.
The Google I/O website previews the schedule for the developer conference, beginning with Google CEO Sundar Pichai’s keynote address, as it does every year. The search giant will also make major product announcements on the first day of the event.
Given the many leaks and rumors about its first contender for best Android smartwatch, it’s a safe bet that Google will eventually show off the Pixel Watch at the event. The rumored device received certification from Bluetooth SIG soon after Google filed a trademark application for it.
After four models of the device passed through the FCC a few weeks ago, the Pixel 6a is also expected to make its debut at the event.
Following the I/O keynote, Google will hold a developer keynote to discuss new updates to the developer products and platform.
The most exciting part for consumers will be when Google introduces everything new about Android, including all the latest updates to Android 13, Jetpack, tooling, performance, and more.
Of course, the first day of the event wouldn’t be complete without Google’s in-depth look at various topics including Firebase, Flutter, Machine Learning for Developers, Augmented Reality, Google Play, Chrome OS, Google Home, and Google Pay, among many others.
The second day will be devoted to technical sessions which will be available on demand.
That said, the schedule overview may not cover everything Google has in store for developers and consumers alike. The search giant is expected to reveal more surprises when the main event begins on May 11.
