Google I/O sessions released – only one keynote this year

May 1, 2013

Google has just released the schedule full of developer sessions for I/O. Over the past few years, Google's always exciting annual developer conference has featured two morning keynotes where they share all the exciting details. Announcements like Google Now last year, Jelly Bean, Nexus 7, and of course Google Glass. However, this year they will be unifying those keynotes into one main event on day 1, then focusing all their efforts on sessions for developers.

Instead of having loads of announcements during a keynote on day 1, as well as day 2, we'll just get the bulk of it on the first day. This doesn't mean we won't have as many announcements, it just means Google wants to focus more time and effort on the actual developer event and developer sessions. Could they be unifying Android and Chrome into one? Since day 2 was supposed to be about Chrome? Doubtful.

We'll be enjoying a 3 hour keynote on the first day where we are expecting Google to unveil all sorts of amazing things. From Google Now improvements, Google Glass, possibly Babel for unified messaging, and of course hardware. We're still up in the air here, but reports suggest Android 4.3 Jelly Bean will be announced. And not Key Lime Pie.

Speaking of Google Babel, there's a sessions called "Google Cloud Messaging" that will be interesting to check out, and we'll report anything exciting from the event live. I'm still hopeful for a new Motorola smartphone to be announced, as well as Google Games to get off the ground. Tell us what you'd like to see, then hit the link below for a list of developer sessions.

    One keynote is probably a good thing; if for no other reason than I won’t have to be on a really long, closed-door “conference call” for three straight days. :-)

    I would also love to see a new Motorola device. Has there be any news on what will be live streaming and what won’t?
