Google I/O 2021 rumours: What to expect
I/O is largely a software-focused event, with Google entirely focusing on its core competencies. At I/O, we usually get a sneak peek of the next version of Android. Google releases the OS to developers early to get familiarise with the update before a beta release this summer. This year, Android 12 is getting a major revamp. Leaked screenshots reveal a visual change, featuring a new interface, widgets and privacy features. Google also uses its annual developer conference to announce major updates to its services and apps, including Chrome and Chrome OS. During previous events, Google announced exciting features coming to Maps and Google Assistant.
