Now that MWC has come and gone, many eyes will be turning to the next event or product launch which is due to take place. While there are a number of events including one from HTC that are expected to take place in the coming months, one of the really big next events will be Google's own event, Google I/O 2016, which is happening in May. The event dates have been confirmed by Google since the company announced the event back in early January. So we already do know that it will take place from May 18th to May 20th and will see a venue change from last year. More specifically, a return to its original Mountain View venue.
In the build-up to the event it now looks as though Google has flicked the switch on the official site as the Google I/O 2016 website is now live and ready to check out. Of course, there is not too much on show right now and certainly no obvious tidbits of information suggesting what the company might unveil at the event. However, the website does at least have a big countdown clock on the front page so you can always be sure of exactly how long you will have to wait until the event begins. Not to mention, the site does provide some details for those who are planning to head to the event this year. Most notably that registration opens on March 8 at 9AM and will remain open until March 10th.
One thing that does look increasingly certain to be playing a major role in this year's event is virtual reality. Suggestions over the last few weeks have highly implied that Google will be making a big virtual reality announcement at I/O. One which will likely include the debuting of the latest rendition of Google Cardboard. Other aspects which will certainly be worth noting is more information on the latest version of Android, which this year will come in the form of Android N. An aspect we have already began to see pieces of information coming through on.
