Google I/O is more or less Google’s answer to Microsoft’s Build and Apple’s WWDC, and today according to a post by Sundar Pichai, it has been revealed that Google I/O 2014 will be taking place on the 25th and 26th of June 2014. As expected the event will be held at the usual location, Moscone West, and the good news is that for those who aren’t able to attend, Google will be live streaming the event so you can catch it live in the comfort of your own home in front of your computer. Interestingly enough, it seems that instead of a first-come-first-serve system when it comes to getting a ticket to go, Google will use a lottery system.
Basically developers or attendees interested in going to Google I/O this year will have to submit a request. Google will then make random selections and those who have been successfully chosen will be able to attend the event. We guess in a way this is good as those who might be slow on the take or who might otherwise be busy with other things will still have a chance of attending the event as well. We’re not sure what Google will be sharing with us at I/O later this year, but presumably we can look forward to Android-related announcements, as well as changes/improvements Google will be making to their products/services, as well as other developer-related activities.
