Google I/O 2016 schedule with two-hour keynote released

Google I/O 2016Google I/O 2016 will take place from May 18th to may 20th. Registration for Google’s Developer Conference closed in early March with the lucky few receiving their attendance confirmations. All that was missing was what Google was planning to offer in terms of sessions and labs to attendees. It today unveiled the schedule and things are kicking off with a two-hour keynote.

Needless to say, Google reveals little about what will be announced during the keynote. Hosted by Google CEO Sundar Pichai, it only promises to cover “product and platform innovation at Google.” Likely topics include Android N, the next major release of its mobile operating system, virtual reality (likely with some hardware announcements including a new version of Google Cardboard) and updates to its ever growing suite of services.

As expected Android features heavily in the session schedule with topics ranging from Google’s location engine and sensors and battery and memory optimizations to Android themes and porting Android app to Android TV. Virtual relaity and Project Tango are also well represented in the schedule.

There are no sessions dedicated to Android Wear at this point.

As in past years, Google will live stream the keynote as well as a number of other sessions for those who did not win a chance to attend or simply cannot do do.
