What is Google I/O 2023?
Google I/O is the search-engine giant's annual conference that targets developers. In recent years, it's been held at the Google Events Center, also known as Googleplex, located in Mountain View California. Although Google I/O is a developers conference, Google typically uses the platform to unveil new products, announce new updates, and reveal novel technologies.
Google I/O kicks off with a keynote where the search-engine giant delves into its future vision for the company and debuts highly anticipated products. For example, at Google I/O 2022, Google made announcements about Android 13, the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, Google Wallet, Google Maps AR View, Google Assistant, Google Cloud, and more.

How to watch Google I/O 2023
If you didn't receive an invite to the Google I/O 2023 keynote in Mountain View, California, don't worry. It will be livestreamed for the entire world. You can watch the keynote via Google's YouTube channel or the Google I/O website.
From personal experience, I'd recommend watching the livestream via the Google I/O website. It will likely be faster and suffer less latency compared to the YouTube livestream.
On the Google I/O website, you'll see the "Register" button. You don't need to register to watch the keynote, but if you're interested in watching the individual virtual sessions and getting deep dives into developer content, you can sign up . Click on "Register," select your Gmail account, and fill out the form.
The next page will prompt you to make a developer profile, but it's not necessary. You can hit "No Thanks" at the bottom-left of the screen.
Once that's done, you're good to go.
What to expect at Google I/O 2023
Of course, we expect Google to dive into the Pixel Fold it teased last Thursday as well as the Pixel 7a, Pixel 8, the Pixel Tablet, Google Bard, and Android 14. However, the search-engine giant will give some updates on other popular services, including Google Play, Google Cloud, Google Home, and more.

After the keynotes, Google says that all of their livestream content will be available on demand on Google I/O's main page and YouTube.
