Google IO 2021 Google Assistant New Products

In less than a month, Google will open its doors to the public. Well, it’s just going to be a virtual event but many people are excited for the Google I/O 2021 after it was totally cancelled last year, no thanks to the pandemic that we are still facing. Every year developers and fans of Google troop to Mountain View, California for o ne of the biggest tech events in the world. The search giant decided to cancel the event. No online event either was held.

We can anticipate new product announcements and feature updates. Tooling changes will also be introduced. As mentioned by Google, there will be new Google Assistant and Smart Home products that will be unveiled during the Google I/O 2021 virtual conference.

For this year, the virtual Google I/O Conference will happen on May 18 to 20, 2021. The invitation is open for everyone. You can join developers from all over the world as some of them will be sharing keynotes and have codelabs, technical sessions, and workshops among others. AMA sessions (Ask Me Anything) will also be held featuring Googlers who will be showing off new tools, features, and APIs.
