The annual Google I/O developer conference will be held on Wednesday at the amphitheater in mountain view, California, for the duration of the conference from May 17th to 19. Google regularly announces some new product development plans at the I/O conference. Let's take a look at what the I/O conference will look forward to.
Android operating system
Google's mobile operating system, Android, will launch a new update. You might see the developer preview Android. It may increase some of our favorite elements, including improved battery life, and notify the information function of dormant PIP function.
At the same time, do not expect to see the next generation of Pixel phones at the I/O conference. Although the next generation of Pixel phones may soon be powered by the Android operating system, it may not be available until about October.
Google Home smart speakers
At the I/O conference last year, Google launched its first smart speaker, Google Home. It is a voice command center that can connect and control all your smart home devices. Although we can not be 100% sure that Google will launch the next generation of Google Home, but this is not impossible. If Google did not launch Google Home at the conference, we would at least be able to see a software update that extends the Google Home feature.
Google, Assistant, and artificial intelligence
Google Home smart speakers, and Google digital voice assistant software Google Assistant launched simultaneously. The Google Assistant voice assistant has appeared on several Google platforms, such as Android, Wear, Android, Auto, and Pixel phones. Its function will continue to increase. At the I/O conference, we are expected to see some new Assistant features appear.
Google, Daydream, and virtual reality
Last year, Google unveiled its View VR helmet to support its virtual reality platform, Daydream. Google continues to invest in VR, such as the recent acquisition of the VR game studio Owlchemy Labs. As a result, we wouldn't be surprised if Google announced the news and content about VR at the I/O conference. Google's augmented reality platform, Tango, has now been incorporated into its VR division, so we are likely to see Google integrate VR and AR further. If Google launches more integrated cameras and controllers for VR and AR, this will no doubt be a happy thing.
Android Wear 2
At the I/O conference in 2016, Google announced plans to launch a new smart watch operating system Android Wear 2. But it wasn't until February of this year that it finally introduced the new operating system. So, at this year's I/O conference, we don't expect Google to launch Android Wear 3. However, we might see it adding some new features to the Android Wear 2.
At the I/O conference next Wednesday (May 17th), Google will deliver a keynote speech at 10:00 a.m. Pacific time. The company may broadcast the event on the internet.
