Google I/O will return to Mountain View on May 10

Posted on

Google just revealed that its annual developer conference, I/O, will return to the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, California on May 10. Like last year, the in-person event will be quite intimate, although the company will stream the keynotes for free. In pre-pandemic years, I/O was a major event with several days of keynotes and workshops.

This small-scale event appears to be largely focused on public lectures, which bring major updates to Google’s various operating systems, such as Android and Wear OS. AI has also been a cornerstone of the show in recent years, and given all the hype we’ve seen for services like ChatGPT and its own bard, I’d say there’s a good chance the company will lean even more heavily on the category on the event this year.

Hardware, on the other hand, has always been a bit of a mess. The budget Pixel 7a seems to be on the horizon, and Google didn’t offer much in the way of Nest smartphone hardware in H2 last year, so that’s also a possibility.

Google notes,

This year’s event will be broadcast to a limited live audience and open to everyone online on May 10, 2023. Tune in to the live-streamed keynotes, then dive into technical content and on-demand learning materials. You can register from March 7 and it is free.

In addition to live streams, the company will also make talks available on demand afterwards. The full event program is yet to be determined.
