Finally Google's massively anticipated I/O event is kicking off this Wednesday with a keynote that's expected to bring a lot of new things on the front. And going by the fact that Google is already expected to make the event big, we are expecting new tech that will pave the way for future.
According to Google, this year's conference is all about three D's: Design, Develop and Distribute. But what really is intriguing in all this is the fact that Google may be looking for more new ways to distribute its apps, apart from just Google Play and the Chrome Web Store.
And as always, major things are expected to happen on the Android front: the operating system that has given Google such a boost in the mobiles department. While we wait to find out what exactly goes down, Google is expected to take Android beyond just its application for a phone.
And when we say beyond phone, we mean that the company is planning to bring it over to your wrist, your TV, and even to your car. But then again, Android won't be the only focus for the company at the event.
Nonetheless, Google will unveil all that needs to be unveiled at the event, and that involves a lot of different tech, applications and even a vision of the future of the mobile industry. So before the biggest nerd party on the planet gets rolling, we are taking a look at the probable things Google might introduce at the event.
Take a look at the top 5 things that you could expect from Google at the event.
