Google I/O is Google’s premiere (developer focused) event where they show off all the projects and products that they have been working on and what is to come for the rest of the year. It’s often where we see our first glimpse of the next major version of Android, talks about Chrome OS, and updates on new projects that are educational and/or connectivity based.
Sundar Pichai , Google’s current CEO, recently announced on Twitter the date of I/O for this year: May 18 – 20. He also stated that it’ll be held at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, which is different from previous year where it’s always been hosted at the Moscone Center.

Pichai recently said in an interview that he might leave the name of the next version of Android up to an online vote, so that’d be very interesting to see from the company. Otherwise, expect to see some updates to all of the external aspect of Alphabet and Google such as Android Auto, Google X Labs, and more energy projects. What are you hopeful and excited to see at this year’s I/O?
