Google I/O 2014 dates revealed

By  | 

The countdown to Google’s annual developer conference I/O 2014 has begun as the dates of the much awaited event have been revealed.

Google’s senior vice president of Android, Chrome and Apps, Sundar Pichai, via Google+ on Wednesday afternoon confirmed that the Google I/O 2014 will be held in San Francisco on June 25 and June 26 at the Moscone West conference center.

“Only 126 days until the 7th annual Google I/O, when we come together with amazing developers like you to talk about what’s next”, noted Pichai.

Pichai, in his post, mentioned that some changes have been made to the registration process. He said that this time developers need not scramble for the second registration lists as a new registration system has been implemented where developers can submit “their interest” in attending the I/O conference.

Although Google didn’t mention what would be the criteria to qualify for the event, but did say that they’d be choosing “randomly selected applicants” who will then be notified shortly thereafter.

Pichai added that the event will be broadcast via a live stream and through I/O Extended community events around the world for all those who can’t attend in person.

More details and information regarding the registration dates is expected to be made available sometime next month.

Though it’s still not clear what Google has in store for the event, it is highly likely that an 8-inch Nexus 8 tablet, Android 5, a Chromecast update and Google Glass update might be on cards.
