The Google I/O app for Android has just been updated with all of the events that are scheduled to take place next week in Mountain View, at the 2017 version of the event. This means that those that are attending the conference next week will be able to use the app to plan their schedule for the three-day event, and also have all of the information they may need about Google I/O at their fingertips. Now the schedule is in the app, but the schedule is still a bit bare. Now that is due to the fact that a number of fireside chats and other workshops will appear after the keynote, seeing as Google needs to announce them first. Another good reason to have the app downloaded and at your fingertips.
With the Google I/O app this year, attendees will be able to reserve their seat for sessions that they want to attend. This way they'll be able to attend the session without worrying if there is enough room for them – which is something that happens quite often at Google I/O. Included in the app is also a map showing you things like where to eat, where the restrooms are and much more. Making it easy to find out where each location is, especially if you're looking for a specific session. It also shows where badge pick up is located, which is something attendees should definitely do before Google I/O kicks off on May 17th.
Now the Google I/O app is mostly geared towards those attending the event, but it's also great for those that are following along with the live streamed events, as you can see what events are happening when. Google I/O 2017 kicks off on May 17th, which is next Wednesday, and Google will definitely have plenty of announcements in the 90-minute keynote on the opening day. Google I/O will bring us new information and features on all of Google's products, including Android O, Android TV, Android Wear, Chrome and so much more. It's taking place at the Shoreline Amphitheater again this year, in Mountain View, as opposed to the Moscone West center in San Francisco.
