Google I/O is an annual developers conference held by Google that focuses on bringing fresh and exciting updates to the Google ecosystem. Every year since 2008, Google I/O talks about the various changes one can expect in the near future, whether it’s with an Android smart device or even its very own operating system. Google I/O 2019 is no different as it saw a bit of everything from new smartphones and smart home devices to even updates to already launched services like Google Lens.

It’s safe to say that the annual Google I/O is the equivalent to the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WDC), which usually happens a month after. Given how smart devices these days are either running on the Google OS or Apple’s iOS, it’s safe to say that these are the two big developer conferences all tech enthusiasts should look out for.

However, if you’re just a regular everyday user who couldn’t be bothered to sit through hours of livestream footage and press conferences, we are here to help. For Android users, this is something to pay close attention to as it will benefit you in the near future. The Likes of Google Lens as well as the Android Q Beta release are some of the biggest announcements to date, alongside the new Google Pixel 3a and 3a XL.
