Google I/O has become one of the most anticipated events for tech enthusiasts all over the globe. With each passing year, the conference only gets better, and we can’t wait to see what Google has in store for us in 2023. From exciting new products to ground-breaking innovations, the anticipation for Google I/O 2023 is at an all-time high. Attendees can expect to hear from some of the brightest minds in the industry, and to see cutting-edge technology that will change the face of the tech landscape. One thing is certain: Google I/O 2023 is not something to be missed!
On May 10, the Google I/O 2023 keynote will open the conference. Sundar Pichai, the company’s CEO, and other Google officials will probably highlight some of the company’s highlights from the previous year. Not just anyone will be able to go to the Shoreline Amphi-theater to see, though, as there will only be a small live crowd.
The keynote will probably be made available on the I/O website, but like the previous year, Google will stream it live on YouTube, where other sessions will probably also be accessible. To make sure you don’t miss out on the excitement, use the video above to set a reminder for yourself.
Google plans to launch the Pixel Tablet this year and I/O seems to be the perfect occasion for the reveal. We can expect it to nestle in between an Android tablet and a Nest Hub, featuring a dock that displays ambient information. Leaks suggest that the tablet will have UWB support and include a neat privacy switch too. But that’s not all. The tablet will reportedly run Android 13, optimized for larger-screen devices, meaning that strength will lie in its speed. It might also share more about Google’s future smart home plans. Pretty exciting, right?
Get ready tech enthusiasts! Google’s Pixel 7a is teasing with its upcoming launch at I/O just like its predecessor did. Meanwhile, the rumor mill is in full swing. Will it boast a higher refresh rate OLED display to match budget Android phones, wireless charging, and swanky colorways among its features? And what about the primary camera’s resolution? We can’t wait to see if its newer Tensor G2 chipset means it’s a gamechanger from the 6a. While at $500 it may cost a bit more, that won’t stop us from anticipating its release and expecting it to be one of the best budget Android phones out there. The race is on, and the Pixel 7a is just around the corner!
The Android 14 beta has already given us a sneak peek of what the next major version of the OS might bring to our smartphones later this year. Excitingly, Satellite Connectivity is among the planned features, and developer previews have disclosed work on additional language features, font scaling, and better background app management for longer battery life.
But that’s not all – the beta has also revealed some striking visual changes that we can expect to see in the final release. For instance, changes to the back arrow and share sheet are looking slicker than ever before. And, perhaps most excitingly of all, the update will reintroduce separate volume sliders for ringtones and notifications. Pixel owners are sure to be thrilled with this addition!
While Google has promised even more features and changes for Android 14, we’ll have to wait for I/O when we expect to get the full rundown. However, it is still impressive what the beta has already revealed. All things considered, we’re in for some significant improvements and exciting updates!
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the current buzz topic, and in this domain, ChatGPT is pretty much the talk of the town. However, the web giant Google doesn’t fall far behind in this race to garner attention. Its products and services are infused with AI in some way or another. But recently, Google is facing the heat of the competition, pushing it to dive deeper into AI development. After Microsoft integrated ChatGPT into Bing and Edge, Google is now all set to develop and test its very own AI chatbot named “Bard.” Its foundation is built on its massive language model that we know so well.
Google has been taking big strides towards AI development, and it all started when the company merged its previously separate AI teams into a single group. Now known as “Google DeepMind,” the team has been making rapid enhancements to Bard and have even introduced generative AI features for Workspace apps, which are currently rolling out to users worldwide. So, gear up to hear a lot about Google’s AI work in this space and other ways the search engine giant is bringing AI into our everyday lives. Who knows, it might (hopefully!) steal some of the spotlight from ChatGPT!
The next installment of Google’s Pixel series, the Pixel 8, has surfaced with renderings of the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro now in circulation. The phones may share common features with their predecessors, but also display prominent discrepencies. Tantalizing teasers suggest the base model of Pixel 8 will boast a slightly smaller 6.2-inch display along with a potentially flat panel, sans the curved screens of its siblings.
However, further intrigue surrounds Google’s mysterious sensor rumored to be next to the triple camera array for the pro model. Will the future Pixel devices feature a LiDAR system to further up Google’s ante? Last year’s Pixel 4 model placed Soli in the spotlight, so perhaps the tech giant is looking for another transcendental leap in its camera technology. Nevertheless, it’s safe to say the jury’s out on this one.
Although the Pixel 8 series isn’t expected to make its debut at this year’s Google I/O, we might still get glimpses of these devices as Google whets our appetite ahead of a full release later this year. Stay tuned for more!
An exciting rumor about the launch of Pixel Watch 2 along with the Pixel 8 series is in the air. If Google unveils the Pixel 8 at I/O, we can anticipate the Pixel Watch successor making its appearance too. But what does Pixel Watch 2 have in store for us? Most probably, it will feature the same design that we have grown to adore. Nonetheless, we keep our fingers crossed and hope for a cutting-edge chipset, minimal bezels, and a high-energy battery. Get ready to witness an ecstatic launch!
