Google schedules Google I/O conference for late June
Google has scheduled its Google I/O developer conference, typically home to several product announcements, for 25-26 June in San Francisco.
The conference will be held at the massive Moscone West hall, Sundar Pichai, Google's Chrome and Android boss, announced on Wednesday. For fans and developers who can't make the conference, Google will be livestreaming Google I/O to people back home.
Product announcements at Google I/O, which in the past has included new versions of Android, web features and hardware, have typically taken place on the first day. The company didn't detail what its schedule is for 2014, but we assume that will be the case once again, so developers will have the remaining day to collaborate on the new announcements.
Google I/O is notorious for selling out quickly, so Google is making big changes to the registration for its 2014 conference. A new lottery system will open in March, when developers submit their interest to attend, with successful applicants being randomly selected and notified shortly afterwards.
