Google I/O 2024 is Happening on May 14th

Google I/O started off primarily as a developer conference, but over the years it has become Google’s main yearly event for announcements around Android, Chrome, AI, and everything else. The company has now confirmed a date for Google I/O 2024, which is likely when we’ll see more of Android 15 and Google’s future AI ambitions.

Google has announced that its I/O 2024 event will be taking place on May 14th. The date was revealed, in usual fashion by the company, after a brief puzzle to try and hype up people about it. The main keynote will be kicking off at 10AM PT (1PM ET), where we’ll see all of Google’s main announcements for the day, followed by a few developer-only keynotes and sessions. There are occasionally interesting announcements during those sessions, but most of them only matter for people building apps and other software in Google’s ecosystem.

Google I/O 2024 will only last one day for those tuning in online, but in-person attendees will see two days of live programming. The specifics of how it will be all laid out, including sessions and schedules beyond the main keynote, will be known closer to the event.

We will almost certainly learn more about Android 15 at Google I/O 2024, including a rundown of any new features the OS might pack, and general availability for the beta on both Pixel phones and non-Pixel phones. We also expect to see a series of updates across a few Google services. There will also definitely be a lot of talk about generative AI technology, because that’s what the current tech hype cycle is all about.

Google also does the occasional hardware announcement during the event, and if previous events serve as reference, we could see the launch of the Pixel 8a here. However, the company usually saves most Pixel and Nest hardware announcements for its fall events.

Make sure to set the May 14th event in your calendar if you want to watch the livestreams, which should go live on the Google YouTube channel, if previous years are anything to go by. We’ll also cover all the important news right here at How-To Geek.
