Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Google has announced that the annual conference held by Google will be held at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View. The 10th Google I/O developer conference will start on May 18 and will end on May 20. This year, the location is a bit more special, since it is the hometown of the company. If you won’t be able to attend neither of three days, then you will be able to watch the whole show live. Even if you won’t be able to make it, here are launches that are going to take place during the conference.
At the conference held by Google last year, the Android N was introduced and it is believed that now it will finally be launched. The latest Android has a lot of incredible features like a split screen, the Dark theme, pressure sensitivity, Multiwindow support and battery management tool. The phone hasn’t got any name yet, and Sundar Pichai said that an online poll will decide between two Indian names “nankhatai” or “neyyappam”.
It is expected that the Apple smartwatch will get some updates, like voice control and better performance. The watch designed by Apple was actually last year’s bestselling smartwatch and the new updates and features will help keep its number one position for a second year in a row.
As Google Glass was a huge success, maybe this year Google will launch another model that will be shaped like a monocle. For those of you who don’t know, Google Glass is a headset that can be worn as a pair of glasses. The glasses were designed in order to produce an ubiquitous computer. Google Glass can display information in a smartphone format and access on the Internet can be done with the help of voice commands. On January 2015 Google announced that Google Glass won’t be produced any more in that shape, but that a new and improved version will be available in the near future.
Because Google is famous for its driverless cars, this year it is expected that improved safety measures will be revealed, mostly because of the accident that Google’s car was involved in, in July. The self-driving cars produced by Google are part of Google’s project to work on technologies for electric cars. Google wants to make these cars available to the public until 2020.
