Google Subscription services for YouTube and Music: is the deal struck?

While it's not clear when Google Music and YouTube will be offering up per-month subscription costs for content above-and-beyond the fold, it appears that sources speaking freely on the matter have made it clear: Google media is on the brink of a big change. Google I/O 2013 spreads across this week starting tomorrow morning, there the first (and only) major keynote showing developers and the public alike what the company will be bringing the market in the near future. Could the YouTube Channel subscription service be ready for an initial announcement - or is it a Google Music streaming service that's ready for action?

Google Nexus Q to be a no show at Google I/O

Completely overpriced and randomly announced last year was the short-lived debut of the Google Nexus Q media device. After being announced nearly a year ago at I/O 2012, then later canceled, we were hoping for some sort of rebound device or revamped Nexus Q this year. Sadly it sounds like that won't be happening. At least according to a few anonymous sources.

Sundar Pichai: Google I/O 2013 will return focus to the developers

With Google I/O just about ready to begin, naturally a big part of what we are going to be seeing over the next few days will be related to the conference. Before it begins though, Sundar Pichai has recently spoken to Wired and the discussion touched on everything from challenges to the dominance of Samsung, the merging of Chrome and Android and of course, Google I/O. Just to clarify though, it still doesn't look like the two Google operating systems are going to be merging anytime soon.

Google Play ‘Games’ fully revealed ahead of Google I/O

All the details regarding Google Play Games, the new home for gamers and Android's response to iOS Game Center, has been revealed this weekend just days before Google I/O. Back in April some details found inside the Google My Glass APK hinted at a gaming center, but today we know all the juicy details.

Google I/O: What we expect in 2013

Google I/O 2013 is less than a week away at this point. The conference runs from May 15th through the 17th and will hopefully bring plenty of goodies for Android users. While there is still some question as to what will be shown and announced, we do know that Google will be running things a little bit different this year. The Google I/O schedule was released earlier in the month and it shows just one keynote. The keynote will run for a few hours on the morning of May 15th and this will be where our immediate attention is focused. The Android Community team will be on-site to bring you the latest, however as we recently saw with the release of the Google I/O 2013 app, these events will also be streamed for those not able to attend.
