Last year Google decided to cancel its 2020 I/O developer conference entirely. But Google’s big developer conference is now back with a brand new format after a year of absence. 

The online-only event kicks off tomorrow, May 18th, and all signs point to it being a big one.

Sundar Pichai himself said that the show would feature “significant product updates and announcements.” From everything we’ve heard so far, that sure seems to be the case. It is still not sure what Google has in store for Google I/O 2021, however now we will share everything we know about the show so far, and what you can expect once the event kicks off tomorrow.

The schedule

Google I/O will begin on May 18th, 2021 with a keynote address at 10 AM Pacific/1 PM Eastern that should serve to highlight most of the company’s software priorities for this year and beyond.
