Recently, Google released its “Collaboration of the Cosmos” puzzle. The idea was that Google would only reveal a secret if the puzzle was solved successfully. Happy news ahead! The puzzle was just solved just meeting the threshold. The big reveal was that Google I/O 2020 will take place from May 12 – 14. The developer conference is scheduled to take place in Mountain View, California right next to the Googleplex. The company is known to wait for fans to crack the puzzles before announcing its dates. The puzzle was a collaborative online game to restore a fictional satellite network. Once the game came to an end, the constellation of satellites revealed the date.
However, unlike the previous I/O puzzles, Google decided to only reveal the message after a certain number managed to crack it. This is the fifth year that the tech giant has planned to host its developer conference at the Shoreline Amphitheatre. This concert venue is a short walk from the company headquarters. The outdoor stage is pretty large and is now being readied to host Sundar Pichai’s main keynote. The company is working on erecting air-conditioned tents in the surrounding parking lots in addition to relaxation areas, demo areas, and more.
Google I/O 2020
If you compare the dates to last year, you will note that the dates for the event fall a week later this year. The event is scheduled to start on Tuesday morning and wrapped up by Thursday afternoon.
Google’s Sundar Pichai recently tweeted, “Cosmos aligned. We’ll be back at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View for this year’s #GoogleIO on May 12-14!”
Now that the dates are revealed, all that is left to know is the pricing and ticketing details. Google is most likely to go ahead with a raffle where the participants will need to fill out an application form mentioning the reason for coming and their area of technical interest. Since the participants will get about a week to submit the application, you can take your time. This should be released sometime next month.
Now that Google has revealed the dates of its upcoming I/O developer conference, rumours have started making the rounds on what the company is likely to launch here. The conference is expected to take place near Google’s HQ – the same place where the tech giant has been hosting the event for the past few years.
Last year’s big announcement at this time included the budget-friendly Pixel 3A and 3A XL. It was a great phone with a stunning camera. With the date confirmed, many believe that we will see the launch or at least get a glimpse into Pixel 4a. It is expected that the model will feature a 3.5mm headphone jack, a hole-punch display, and a square camera bump. Since Pixel 3a was released around the same time last year, fans believe that this is the perfect time for the 4a smartphone reveal. In addition to the 3a smartphone, Google also revealed its Nest Hub Max. We hope this year brings more Nest hardware as well.
