Google is hosting a “Hey Google” Smart Home Summit to unveil new Google Assistant developer tools

Google I/O 2020, which was scheduled for May, was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Like many other tech companies, Google has been trying to make up for it with virtual events. The latest virtual event from the Mountain View company is the “Works with ‘Hey Google’ Smart Home Summit” on July 8th.

The “Hey Google” Smart Home Summit is an event focused on the new tools and features for the smart home developer community. Of course, a big part of the company’s smart home strategy revolves around Google Assistant, which will be a big focus of the event as well.

Google has shared the agenda for the 2-day event with the topics and speakers that will be featured. Things get started on July 8th at 1:45 PM ET with the opening keynote by Michele Turner, the Product Management director of the Smart Home Ecosystem. Some of the other speakers include executives from LG, Vizio, IKEA, and, of course, other departments within Google.

Registration for the Hey Google Smart Home Summit is free and the times of the panels have been scheduled to align with multiple time zones. Many of the panels will be viewable on-demand as well. If you’re a developer working on Google Assistant and smart home tools, this is an event you’ll want to “attend.”
