feel it? the weather gets warmer, later it gets milder outside and there are some [long, extended inhale] development in the air. This morning ahead of the annual Google Developers Conference, new clues emerged. The company has since confirmed that the show will continue on May 11 and 12.
Traditionally held at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, California, Google pulled the show entirely in 2020 due to concerns about the then-new COVID-19 pandemic. Last year, he joined the rest of the tech world by going fully digital. The company returns to the concert hall with a “limited live audience”. Again, the show will include a free virtual streaming element for anyone who can’t attend.
Like Apple’s WWDC, the show is designed for developers and also loads consumer content on the frontend during a quick disconnect. Updates to Android, Wear OS, and various Google services are all but blocked. Hardware has traditionally been a bit crappier. Some haven’t seen the device in years, while others have joined the Nest and Pixel lines. The show also included a host of surprises, including the announcement of the AI-powered booking service Duplex and the first live demo since.
