Google I/O 2017, the biggest developer event for Google, is kicking off today, on May 17th with a keynote by Google chief executive Sundar Pichai.
The one-and-a-half hour keynote will chart the future year for Google, bring important new announcements about the direction for Google's Artificial Intelligence (AI) efforts, the Android platform and more.
So far we expect Google to speak a lot about the Google Assistant, its smart voice helper that could come to iPhones and iPads very soon. The Google Assistant is expected to improve its capabilities as part of Google Home as well.
The other big topic of conversation will be the upcoming Android O. Google has already unveiled this upcoming version of the Android platform, and we know its basic line of improvements: adding the option to snooze notifications, get more granular control over notifications, focus on battery life improvements, improved Bluetooth support, better organized settings, picture-in-picture video and more.
We should also get an update on Android apps running on Chrome computers, and of course, Google will not forget about VR and AR. Tune in for all of this at the video above on
Wednesday, May 17th from 10am to 11:30am PT
(event starts at 1pm New York ET | 6pm London GMT)
Do keep in mind that this year, Google will also be holding a separate keynote for developers only. That other keynote starts a bit later.
