For the past few years, many companies have opted to either cancel their events or to hold them virtually. This was due to the ongoing pandemic which made it a bit difficult and also risky to host in-person events. However, Google appears to be working back to some semblance of normalcy.
The company has announced and confirmed that they will be hosting an in-person I/O event this year and that it will be taking place from the 11-12th of May, 2022. However, it won’t be the same as before where they will allow a huge crowd. Instead, Google says that they will be limiting the number of attendees.

However, even then those who are allowed to attend are basically Google themselves, such as employees, as well as Google’s partners. The good news is that Google will be also making it a virtual and streamable event so you can watch it from the comfort of your own home.
It is unclear what the event will unveil, but chances are we’ll probably learn more about Android 13, Google’s next major Android update, and maybe other software related developments. There were rumors of a Pixel Watch and maybe Pixel 6a being announced, but apparently the launch of those devices have since been pushed back so maybe we won’t hear anything about them.
