Google's I/O 2018 which is the tech giant's developer conference which will begin from Tuesday, May 8. Like every other time, Google might introduce the new version of Android which is the Android P. However, users can also expect that Google might make some other announcement related to the software features that would be available for the users. This will include, Android Auto, Android P, Android TV, Chrome OS, Google Assistant, etc.
Google's event schedule page, shows the list of services that would be made available by the tech giant. The Chromebooks by Google have also a dedicated session this time and it is called "What's new in Android apps for Chrome OS. Hence, the Android P announcement is expected to take the centre stage at Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View. It is also expected that Google might also introduce something new to the table for Chrome OS.
Let's have a look at what else Google might announce during the I/O 2018:
Chrome OS might get Android apps:
We believe all the Google users might be thinking of what Google might introduce during the I/O 2018. There are a number of guesses and speculation revolving around the I/O 2018. It is being expected that Google might introduce Android apps to the older Chromebooks also. This is one of the major steps that Google could take to renew its Chrome OS and add more feature to its functionalities. It has been years that Google has introduced an Android app for the Chrome OS-powered devices. It is also expected that more Chromebooks including the older versions along with the new version will get a PlayStore support.
It is also expected that a better support for multitasking of apps i.e window management, and scaling, which is not yet supported with some apps is to take place. Also, the Android apps on the Chromebook can also get the same app icon shortcuts that a user is used to on the phone.
When we speak about the hardware department, it is expected that Google might also introduce some new hardware including the first Chromebook that will come along with a 4K display. Keeping the fact in mind that Apple has already introduced an education-focused product, Google might also introduce some of its new Chromebooks in order to get some attention.
It is also expected that Google might showcase some tablets running on Chrome OS. Acer has already announced their first Chromebook Tab 10, which I the first tablet that is running on Chrome OS. So it would not be wrong to expect the same from Google.
