When is Google I/O 2018?

Insight January 29th, 2018 2 Min Read

Every summer Google hosts its annual developers’ conference, Google I/O. It’s of more interest to developers than consumers, but the opening keynote typically contains some interesting information on upcoming Google software (this is not a hardware event). In 2018 we expect to hear more about Android PAndroid Wear 3.0Android Things and the Google Assistant.

When is Google I/O 2018?

Google I/O 2018 will take place 8-10 May 2018. 

The developers’ conference is held in the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California.

It gave away the date at the end of a room-escape game it created on the google.com/io website. In the process it also hinted that the next version of Google Android might be Android Pineapple, or perhaps we’re reading too much into the Pineapple Upside-Down Cake left on the boardroom table in room 2 (after all, the theme for that room was Upside-Down).

What will be announced at Google I/O 2018?

For consumers, the two big announcements are likely to be Android P, the next Google operating system for phones and tablets, and Android Wear 3.0, the next instalment of its smartwatch OS. We may also hear news on Google Home and Google Assistant.

Android P may be announced ahead of I/O again, as it was last year, but the final consumer release won’t arrive until late August. It’s probable that a new beta version will be released at I/O in May.

Play :

It is possible to install the developer preview on consumer devices, but unless you know what you’re doing its usually best to wait for the full release. In August Android P will be available to recent Google Pixel devices, and at September’s IFA 2018 we will likely see the first devices running Android P out of the box.
