Those of you lucky enough to get Google I/O invites can check out the online schedule now to see what they have in store for you! The rest of us can also look longingly at the agenda and wish we could go to some of the awesome sessions. The event will kick off with a 2 hour keynotes followed by several breakout sessions on Day 1 that range from coding labs to workshops on Android TV and Google Fit app integration. After digging through the descriptions a bit, I also found this interesting gem:
Android M is bringing the power of Android to all kinds of workplaces. This opens huge new markets for hundreds of millions of devices to workers at small business, deskless workers, logistics and warehousing jobs; all be empowered by adoption of Android devices at Work.
If this quote is any indication, it looks like Microsoft was dead wrong about Google’s lack of interest in appealing to business customers with Android. Most likely, we will get a preview of Android M at I/O, just like we did with Lollipop last year. I personally believe that Android M might be focussed more towards the business sector and security features as Lollipop was a huge overhaul in terms of consumer experience and design changes. Speaking of Lollipop, Google also has some sessions planned to tell us more about where the future of Material Design is headed. Overall I’m super pumped for I/O, wish I could be there, but I will damn sure be streaming it and covering the news 24/7 during the event! Anyone else consider I/O to be a second Christmas season?
EDIT: Looks like they took down the mentions of Android M. LOL!
