On Tuesday morning, Google will kick off I/O, its annual three-day conference for developers. We’ll hear about changes coming to Android, a new app or three for consumers, and maybe a tidbit or two about what the company is doing with hardware, machine intelligence, mixed reality, voice transcription, digital wellness, self-driving cars. You know, Google stuff. You can read Arielle Pardes’s overview of what to expect here on WIRED before I/O gets underway.
Why would we liveblog the event if it’s also being streamed? It’s simple: We’ll use this space provide in-depth commentary and analysis of everything the executives are saying on stage—and of course, what they’re not saying.
The Google I/O 2019 keynote begins at 10 am Pacific, 1 pm Eastern. Our liveblog will begin about 30 minutes before the keynote. So come back to this page at 9:30 am Pacific, 12:30 pm Eastern. Once we go live, this text you’re reading right now will be replaced by our live feed of updates and commentary.
