Google’s major annual developer conference, Google I/O, will take place on May 11 and 12. the company announced on Wednesday† The event will once again be fully online, although it sounds like at least part of the conference will be streamed live from the Shoreline Amphitheater, a frequent Google I/O location.
Registration is free and starts sometime this month, according to an FAQ. There will be no tickets, which seems to mean anyone who wants can attend.
Google I/O was canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and returned as an online event in 2021. The company made some big announcements during last year’s event, including the debut of Android 12’s “Material You” – design, with updates to Google Workspace, and said Google’s Wear OS and Samsung’s Tizen would merge into one platform (now known as Wear OS 3).
We don’t know exactly what’s coming this year, but given that Google has already released the first preview of Android 13, it seems likely that one of the focuses will be that operating system.
