Google I/O, n;
Google’s annual developer conference focusing on the advances in the company’s softwares and devices. The “I” stands for input and the “O” stands for output. It is a conference similar in spirit to Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference, both of which involve high-profile keynotes alongside developer hacking sessions.
This year’s I/O conference begins tomorrow, June 25, and the keynote from Google is expected to be full of new gadgets and technology updates. Many are speculating about new wearables (called Android Wear), including smart watches and fitness bands, as well as updates for the now-public Google Glass. There could also be a new operating system for Android, either with small updates or a fairly large visual and functional overhaul to compete with iOS 7 and 8.
Considering all the different soft and hardware Google has in its arsenal (Android, Chrome) and its futuristic experimental projects (Tango, Ara, Loon), the keynote is sure to be jam-packed with exciting updates. You can keep up with I/O through The Verge’s live blog or on Google’s dedicated site starting at 9:00a Pacific.
