Google has rolled out the schedule for this year’s keynote developers’ conference Google I/O 2019 and the tech-extravaganza will be held on May 7 to May 9 at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California.
Google has released the schedule for its upcoming Google I/O event that’s slated to start on May 7. The tech giant has posted the initial schedule for the event that will run till May 10. Google’s I/O 2019 will be held at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California, and will begin a two-hour keynote from its CEO, Sundar Pichai on May 7. As per the schedule, the event will see Google hold sessions on as many as 20 topics. From Accessibility, Android / Play, Gaming and Augmented Reality, the sessions will cover a lot.
Apart from Sundar Pichai’s keynote address, the event will also see an hour-long developer keynote as well as a “What’s New in Gaming at Google” session hosted by VP Phil Harrison. Being the senior VP, Harrison is expected to give fans more details on Google’s new gaming platform, Stadia. Much like last year, Google I/O being the yearly developers conference of Google should bring with it news of the upcoming version of Android. The company is expected to take the lid off many of the upcoming features that we can expect in Android Q.
The schedule released by Google also mentions a session, “Moving away from the light with Android Q” which appears to be a hint Android Q’s system-wide Dark Mode. This will be an interesting session as Google is expected to give developers an idea of what changes they will need to implement to make their applications work with the new system-wide dark mode. We might or might not see new devices such as the rumoured Google Pixel 3 Lite smartphone and the secretive Google Fuchsia OS project. We can expect some updates to features demonstrated in previous years, including the AI-powered Google Duplex, real-time voice translation, and AR in Google Maps.
