Google I/O 2022 will take place on May 11-12, the company has announced. Similar to last year, this year’s Google I/O will be available to virtually everyone for free. However, the event will be livestreamed from Google’s Shoreline Amphitheater — the regular venue for the I/O conference — and will have a “limited live audience” that may include Google employees and some partners. Google also continued the tradition of releasing an “SVD” puzzle before announcing the dates for its annual developer-centric conference.
Managing Director Sundar Pichai announced the Google I/O 2022 data through a tweet posted on Thursday. The conference will be broadcast live and is accessible to all virtual participants free of charge.
According to an FAQ page available Registrations for the conference will begin later this month on the Google I/O site.
In an opinion divided Google spokesman Alex Garcia-Kummert told The Verge that this year’s event will be broadcast to a limited live audience. Google cleared Axios’ Ina Fried said the limited audience will mostly include Google employees and some partners.
This indicates that this year’s Google I/O would remain an online event for the rest of the attendees.
In 2020, Google completely canceled its I/O conference due to the emergence of COVID-19. However, last year she held the event as a purely online conference.
The Google I/O has been popular with developers building mobile and web apps since its launch in 2008. However, in the general public, the conference has been on the rise in recent years due to various consumer-focused announcements, including the release of new Android features.
Last year, Google introduced Android 12 with Material You Design. It also announced a partnership with Samsung for the development of the new Wear OS update.
Google is likely to showcase Android 13 at its I/O conference this year, detailing its alleged foldable phone and Pixel Watch developments. We’ll also likely see the Pixel 6a as Google’s new affordable Android phone.
Prior to announcing the dates for Google I/O 2022, Google brought out Wednesday’s SVD puzzle, which asked enthusiasts to untangle a specific string of characters with some references.
The puzzle includes overlapping shapes and a sound toy to help solve the puzzle and recognize the dates as a fun exercise.
