Virtual conference

Google I/O 2022 will take place on May 11 and 12 as a virtual conference

The difficult SVD puzzle – if solved – reveals that Google will host I/O 2022 from May 11-12. This is another virtual event that everyone can participate in for free.

I/O 2022 will be a virtual event without on-site attendance for the general public. Everyone can watch via YouTube, while the interactive I/O Adventure world will be back for another year.

Chat with Googlers, ask product questions, interact with the developer community, and expand your technical knowledge. Earn Google Developer Profile badges and virtual gifts. Create an avatar and search for Easter eggs. Try new Google products and features through a sandbox experience.

Unlike other tech companies, Sundar Pichai and the developers’ keynote speeches on May 11 will be streamed live from the usual stage in the Shoreline Amphitheater. Last year it aired from the Googleplex with a small audience of Googlers.

Various pre-recorded sessions covering Android, Chrome/web, and more will be available after the livestream. In addition to I/O Adventure, there will be the Learning Lab 2022 (workshops, tutorials, codelabs, etc.) and Community groups. Registration is required to access these interactive features, including the personalized My I/O panel to view earned badges and saved content, while the official event hashtag is #GoogleIO.

Google will make the calendar/schedule available closer to I/O 2022.

This event is one day shorter than usual and starts on Wednesday instead of Tuesday. This is an opportunity for Google to make its biggest software announcements of the year. Android 12 and Material You, along with Wear OS 3, were the highlights of 2021.

On the mobile OS front, Android 13 will be in beta for a month when I/O kicks off due to this year’s accelerated preview period. In the meantime, it remains to be seen if Made by Google will use the livestream to announce new products like it did in 2019. The Pixel 6a and Pixel Watch are widely rumored.
