Google’s ninth edition of its annual software developer-focused conference will take place from May 18-20, Mountain View, California, and those who registered for a general admission/ academic ticket should check their emails, because there are high chances that they’ve received an invite for the event.
Google I/O 2016 registration was officially open last week and now, the company started sending out invitations to the lucky winners. In the invite email, Google included the following text:
“Congrats! You’ve been selected to purchase a General Admission ticket for Google I/O’16. Google I/O is a festival for developers and technologists. During I/O, you’ll learn about our latest product innovations and dive deep into code, all while networking with your peers and Google engineers.”
If you’re one of the lucky winners who received this email, you’ll have 24 hours to claim your spot at I/O, but you’ll spend $900 for the general admission ticket, or three times less on the academic pass. The invites for the previous editions were sent in waves, so you shouldn’t worry if you haven’t received your invitation yet. When all the spots will be taken, Google will inform the unsuccessful applicants that they are rejected, through an email. And for those who won’t be able to make to this year’s Google I/O event, all major publications will write about Google’s announcements, updating their websites in real time.
Over a week ago, Google has released the Developer Preview of its upcoming Android N software and those who are interested in testing out its new features can enroll in the beta testing program or flash the factory image, but either way, they will keep receiving updates when the company releases new builds. Some of the features that have been confirmed are the multi-window mode, the new Settings menu, an enhanced Doze mode, revamped quick settings panel, faster app optimization, new data saver, dark mode and emergency info on the lockscreen.
