Google I/O 2016 Dates Set at May 18-20


As we wind down CES coverage and amp up for MWC, it is also important to remember that Google holds their own big event once a year. Google I/O in 2015 saw lots of software announcements, including the number of bug fixes and battery enhancements coming to Android M and the new and improved Photos app. Unlike CES and MWC, Google I/O can be pretty pricey to attend, even for media. Yesterday, Sundar Pichai announced that this year I/O will take place May 18-20 and the event is being moved to Mountain View and the Shoreline Amphitheatre:

We will certainly do our best to get our hands on an invite through Google’s random drawing system when it opens. This year expect to see a lot of IoT, wearables, and of course…an update on Android N. The event is a bit earlier this year so mark your calendar and plan to skip work for the keynote!

"I am currently a researcher and Adjunct Professor at Arizona State University and Grand Canyon University. I fell in love with Android with the Nexus One release and realized that it was superior to iOS in all the ways I care about. I still use a Mac (and an iPhone for the camera), but my Apple tech products pale in comparison to my number of Android devices (watches, tablets, and phones). When I’m not rooting/modding one of my many Android phones or doing math/programming, you can find me taking in Phoenix Suns/Arizona Diamondbacks games in downtown Phoenix, and drinking good beer!"
