Don’t Forget to Tune in for the Google I/O 2014 Live Stream!
Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past few weeks—and that’s OK if you have—you’re undoubtedly aware that we are just two short days away from Google’s yearly I/O conference. Google I/O 2014 is set to kick off at 9 AM PDT (UTC-8) with a two-hour event keynote.
This two-day conference will cover topics such as the future of Android, Android Wear, Glass, Project Tango, ART Compiler, developer tools for Android and Chrome, and so much more. And within all of the talks and events, there will be plenty for both developers and end users to enjoy. At this point, everyone who failed to get a ticket to I/O2014 is probably feeling a little left out. But fret not, as Google will be live streaming the event keynote and all of the sessions from the event webpage.
It’s time to start getting excited for I/O, folks–even if you can’t physically attend. To view all of the topics that will be available for live streaming, head over to the Google I/O 2014 schedule site and tick the live streaming option on the right hand side. And when the time finally comes, you’ll be able to stream from there directly–but don’t worry, we’ll remind you at that point as well.
What sessions are you looking forward to at this year’s I/O? Are you most excited about the changes to Android and the possible release of Android “L”, or are you more interested in the future of Project Tango, Android Wear, Glass, and other Google products?
