(Google) has announced the date of the Google I / O 2020 Developer Conference this year: May 12 through May 14. This time, too, the conference is expected to take place largely in the Mountain View California Open Amphitheater in California, very close to the company’s main downstairs.
While the conference includes many activities designed for developers who come to it, including workshops and lectures on programming and various Google tools, its main importance to the general public stems from the announcements expected in the opening speech. This will probably be where the highlights of Android 11 OS will be unveiled, with the first beta expected to release near the conference date. On this occasion, Google usually announces new apps for additional platforms as well: this was where the digital assistant (Google Assistant) app first appeared and the Google Photos app for iOS devices, for example.
In addition, the company is likely to unveil at least some new hardware products: both speakers and smartphones, and smartphones, presumably the sequels to the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL announced at the opening of the I / O conference the previous year. Another, and not very wild, prophecy is that Google will choose to dedicate a significant portion of the event to highlighting its contribution to scientific, medical research and its assistance to third world countries, meaningful messages for it in an age where criticism against privacy and user surveillance is intensifying.
