Google’s annual I/O developers conference will be held from June 25-26 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Last year, the event was pretty light on hardware, though Google used the stage to announce some big new services, including Google Play Music All Access and a dedicated Hangout app, which has become the stock messaging application in Android 4.4 KitKat.
The news was announced by Google senior vice president Sundar Pichai, who last year took over as the head of Android, Chrome and Google Apps. It’s unclear what to expect at the event—it’s very unlikely we’ll see a successor to the Nexus 5, though a possible Nexus 10 sequel could be on the cards. Google introduced its Chromebook Pixel last year as well, so perhaps we’ll see a bigger Chrome OS push. Additionally, with Glass well into its Explorer program, we’ll probably hear more finalized plans on that as well.
Google I/O is an immensely popular conference, so in an effort to give everyone a fair shot at attending, Pichai said the company will use a lottery system and randomly select potential attendees. However, if you are unable to attend, the company said it will live stream every keynote and session.
