The Google I/O 2022 will be held in-person and as usual, the event will be live-streamed on YouTube as well. There will be limited seats available for in-person attendance, considering we are still not 100% over the Covid-19 situations.

For those who are unaware, Google I/O is Google’s annual developer conference event, which is usually scheduled for two to three days (2-days in 2022). While most of the announcements are focused on the developers and Google’s latest updates on the developer tools, for regular users, the opening keynote is the segment is the one to watch out for, which will be delivered by the CEO, Sundar Pichai on Day 1, kicking off the event.

The keynote usually gives us a glimpse of what Google has been working on for the past few months and what all products and services the company is planning to launch in the coming months. Usually, Google will announce the latest Android version build, updates on Chrome, Google Play, and any other Google apps and services. Last year’s headline announcement came when Google announced a partnership with Samsung to make Wear OS to the next level.

This year, at Google I/O 2022, we can expect the Android 13 beta 2 to drop as beta 1 is scheduled for the April launch. Previous rumours also suggested that Google Pixel 6A will be announced at Google I/O, however, there is no confirmation on the same yet. A full schedule for the event is yet to be published and as of now, the site just has the countdown on the home page and you can register and earn an I/O ticket badge, which will reflect on your developer account. Apart from that, we can also expect updates from Google on Google Assistant, Android Auto, Google Maps, Google Search, AI, and more.
