Google I/O 2019 Date and Venue Revealed: Android Q To Be Announced
Google’s marquee developer conference I/O for 2019 will take place from 7 to 9 May. The venue for the event has been confirmed as Shoreline Amphitheatre in the United States by Sundar Pichai, CEO, Google.
As is the drill, Pichai will throw the event open with a keynote and will shed light on some of the new products that are being developed at the Google HQ.
This is where we get a glimpse of the next Android flavour every year, and this year it’s time for the yet to be named Android Q to officially make its debut in front of thousands of developers who will be working on apps for the new OS version.
We’ve already heard a lot about Android Q, the headlining feature being dark mode switched on for apps across the phone. YouTube already supports the mode on mobile and we’re keen to see other products like Gmail and even Google Assistant supporting the feature.
In addition to Android Q, Google is likely to shed more details on its Fuchsia OS, the new version of Android Wear for smartwatches, and even talk about its recent decision to buy patents from Fossil, the European watchmaker.
We’re also hopeful Google showcases a new range of smart devices and smart speakers that will compete with Amazon’s Echo range of speakers and other products that have been launched over the past six months or so.
The event and especially the keynote will be live streamed via YouTube and you can stay up to date with Google I/O 2019 with The Quint’s live blog for more details.
