Google I/0 2024: All the anticipated news

In contrast to previous hardware declarations, Google has been able to maintain secrecy about its I/O 2024 intentions. Nonetheless, the business is anticipated to add Gemini-powered AI features to its portfolio of products given Google's emphasis on AI.

1) Hardware announcements: Although I/O has always been mostly a software-focused event, Google has previously made a number of hardware announcements. For example, during last year's I/O event, the firm unveiled the Pixel 7a and its first-ever Pixel Fold.

But, Google has previously revealed that the Pixel 8a will be on sale on May 14, the day of I/O. According to sources, Google could decide not to introduce the Pixel Fold 2 smartphone at this year's I/O conference. Instead, it may be a preview for the company's next foldable gadget, which will also be rebranded as the Pixel 9 Pro Fold and will ship alongside the Pixel 9 series in September. 

It is still anticipated that Google will talk about the recently released Pixel 8a for a while, maybe even emphasizing its AI capabilities because of the inclusion of Gemini AI.

2) Android15: For fans of Android, the wait is over as Google is probably going to announce the new features and release window for Android15 during the I/O2024 event. As of right moment, only Pixel smartphones are able to test the most recent version of Android, which is still in beta testing.

Android 15 isn't anticipated to bring about a significant redesign; instead, it may offer a number of improvements that might improve users' security, productivity, and privacy.Along with many other new features, the most recent version of Google's operating system will have satellite connectivity, audio sharing, notification cooldown, app archiving, and partial screen sharing.

3) Gemini AI everywhere: It's anticipated that Google would include Gemini AI features into a wide range of programs, such as Gmail, Google Workspace, Chrome, Maps, and more. Furthermore, Gemini is anticipated to take center stage in all Android devices moving ahead, most likely dispensing with the previously prevalent Google Assistant.

Google also plans to launch "Pixie," a brand-new virtual assistant that is unique to Pixel devices and is powered by Gemini. The new assistant could have multimodal capabilities, which means that customers would be able to exchange photos with Pixie in addition to text or speech inputs.

4) Wear OS 5 and Android TV: Google has at last made the decision to provide a much-needed update to its wearable operating system. Still, the business has been reticent about all the additional features that Wear OS 5 would offer.

According to the description of the Wear OS session, the new operating system will incorporate improvements to the Watch Face format as well as lessons on how to construct and design for a wider variety of devices.
