Google has announced its yearly developer conference, “Google I/O,” set to take place May 11–12, 2022. The company made this announcement on Wednesday. It also confirmed that the event would be fully online once again.
However, it seems that at least a part of the conference will be aired live from the firm’s regular Google I/O venue, which is Shoreline Amphitheatre.
According to Google spokesman Alex Garcia-Kummert, this year’s event will be shown in front of a small live audience and will be completely free and open to everyone online.
Google also shared a statement with Ina Fried, the chief technology correspondent at Axios, saying, “That limited audience would consist mostly of Google workers and certain partners.”
The registrations for the conference will be free and begin anytime later this month. There will be no tickets for the conference. It indicates that everyone wishing to attend the conference will be allowed to join.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Google I/O was cancelled in 2020. However, it was revived in 2021 as an online-only event. In its 2021 event, the company announced the introduction of Android 12’s “Material You” design. Besides that, it announced upgrades to Google Workspace. Moreover, it revealed the merge of Google’s Wear OS and Samsung’s Tizen into a single platform.
