The Google I/O event will take place on May 10 and 11, highlighting Google technologies like Android and Chrome for developers and journalists alike. Since the event sold out in less than an hour this year, Google has decided to provide free live video streams of its Android and Chrome session in addition to the live streams of the keynotes that it has offered in years past. All of the live streams will have real-time captioning, as well.
For those sessions not shown live, Google aims to provide freely accessible HD video footage, also with captions, within 24 hours. Google previously arranged Google I/O Extended events which let developers gather in groups in a handful of cities to watch the event live from these remote locations. U.S. locations include Boise, ID; Charlotte, NC; Maui, HI; San José, CA’ Twin Cities, MN; and Washington, DC. If you can’t get to I/O or one of these Extended I/O parties, then you can watch in the comfort of your own home or organize your own viewing party. Of course, we’ll be watching this very closely as well and will have all the latest for you!
The Google I/O event starts at 9 a.m. Pacific time on May 10.
