Now you can connect with developers from around the world at this year’s virtual Google I/O for thoughtful discussions, hands-on learning with Google experts, and the first look at our latest developer products.

After their cancellation last year, Google announced that I/O 2021 will be virtual and free to attend. This developer conference is the company’s biggest event of the year and will run from May 18-20.

Google I/O 2021 will feature Consumer and Developer Keynotes — focused on “company and product news” — followed by Technical Sessions for “product announcements and how to adopt new features.” These will be scheduled throughout the three-day event and available on demand. The full lineup will be made available in late April.

Users will have to register for Workshops that are instructor-led and feature Q&A, while Ask Me Anything (AMA) sessions will be an “opportunity to ask Google product experts questions.” Meetups “casual, open forums hosted by Google that enable attendees to connect with each other” — will also require registration and reservation.

Registration is now open and provides access to live Q&A during Sessions, Workshops, Ask Me Anything (AMA) sessions, personalized content, badges, and chat in I/O Adventure.
