Google I/O 2016 Happens May 18-20th

Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai has Tweeted in the past hour the dates many Android developers have been waiting for patiently (or impatiently): The dates of Google I/O 2016.

The developer conference will be held from May 18-20th and it will be held in the area where the event started 10 years ago, the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, California.

The news and 5 month heads-up notice is great for developers as they can start blocking out the dates and prepare for travel well in advance, even though registration and other details were not mentioned in the Tweet.


This year’s Google I/O is expected to be busy once again with the announcement of Android N is expected along with further developments in the Chrome OS and other services from the company.  Again, no real solid details of what to expect have been released but an announcement of N is pretty much a lock given this is Google’s developer conference.

Of note in Sundar’s Tweet is the hashtag #io16 which pretty much locks it as being the official hashtag for the event.

How many of you are planning to attend this year’s conference?
