Though Google I/O tickets had quickly sold out on the day they were made available for purchase, Android and Google fans who cannot make it to San Francisco, California or were not able to grab tickets can still catch all the fun and excitement. Google will be live streaming the Google I/O keynote and sessions will be made available for users at home to view on a YouTube stream.
The keynote kicks off today at 9 AM Pacific Time, so make sure you tune in. Keynote information and session details can be found by visiting the Google I/O developer portal where Google has posted the session information.
The YouTube live stream can also be watched at 9 AM and this year’s keynote will be a three-hour long presentation on the first day.
And while users at home can still get all the important information from the sessions, developers who paid for tickets to attend will benefit from one-on-one time with Google in these sessions where they can participate and ask questions, network with other attendees, and see first-hand what all the commotion is about.
Our own Josh Smith and Xavier Lanier will be on hand to cover Google I/O, so stay tuned with GottaBeMobile for more Google I/O coverage. We’ll be posting throughout the day of any news that we find, and we’ll share our own thoughts on Google’s announcements as well.
It’s definitely shaping out to be a busy week in consumer tech. Nokia and BlackBerry already made their announcements and Microsoft shared some information about Windows 8.1 ahead of its Build conference. Now, we just have to wait for Google to take the stage and announce what’s new with Android, Chrome, and apps. So far, there have been rumors for new Google services, like a Play Games service as well as a potential music streaming service, as well as a possible refresh of the Nexus 7 slate that will bring better specs to the affordably priced tablet.
