The tenth Google I/O developer conference will kick off on May 18 and will last days, being held in the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View. This is the company’s hometown, the “neighborhood where it all started”, as Sundar Pichai, Chief Executive Officer of Google wrote on Twitter. The host will also offer live broadcasting for those who won’t be able to make it to the event, and in this article we’ll you about the products that will or might be unveiled at the Google I/O event.
Android M was unveiled last year, but Google didn’t reveal its “sweet” name and the fans were still making bets and adding new possible names to the list, which included Marshmallow, Muffin or Meringue. Most likely, in 2015, Google will do the same with Android N, which is rumored to introduce Split Screen and Multiwindow support, as the team who created the Pixel C tablet, has hinted. Android 7 might be called Neyyappam or Nankhatai, which are Indian desserts, but these names are too complicated and without a doubt, Google will find something that is easier to remember.
The latest version of Android Wear is 188.8.131.520307 and it was released over a month ago. Without a doubt, Google will improve the performance of its smartwatch OS, as well as the voice controls. And it would be great if more smartwatches would be presented at the event, which would be compatible with this operating system.
This is a smartphone developed by Google in collaboration with Lenovo and which can generate on-screen 3D objects from a room, which are previously “scanned”.
Unfortunately, last year, Google’s self-driving automobiles proved that they aren’t as safe as the company has thought and claimed, as one of them was involved in an accident. So, Google will need to make safer vehicles, which are compatible with the system and which will protect drivers even in terrible weather. It is rumored that Android Auto OS will support third-party applications such as Waze.
It was rumored that Chrome OS will merge with Android OS, but we’ll see if Google is planning this. But if the Chome OS will continue to be updated, then more features will come soon.
This would be the second generation Nexus 7 tablet, and rumors say that it will be manufactured by Huawei and released in May.
Google has been working on this project since 2013, and we still don’t know if the modular smartphones will arrive in 2016 or not. Google will offer a platform which will include an endoskeleton that will hold the modules: display, camera, battery and processor, which the users will choose from the list of options. They will customize their devices according to their budgets.
