Its I/O time again. Google IO – Google’s Annual developer conference, is merely a week away. As already announced, Google IO 2022 Edition will take place on May 11 and 12th this year starting 10 AM PDT from Shoreline theatre in California. From announcements and technology deep-dives to bringing the developer community together, I/O is a unique experience for everyone who loves All things Google.

Although, Google IO is mainly a developer conference for Google products and services. Google never shy away from launching new stuff during these events. Like last year in Google IO 2021, google announced Android 12 and Material You Design.

Android 13

Last Week, Google has already launched their beta for Android 13. while, there is not much changed from the Android 12. the main focus for android 13 will be user’s privacy. We expect Google to announce how the final version of android 13 will look like with lot of magical features and tricks (Remember Magic eraser?)

Wear OS 3 & Pixel Watch

At this time, We have already caught the most-anticipated Pixel Watch in the wild. Although, There are quite low chances we will see Pixel Watch being unveiled at IO this year, we hope to see the newest Wear OS 3.1 and we hope to see how the stock experience of Wear OS will look like.

Google Home

There are five sessions directed to Smart Home at this year’s IO Agenda. Google is already cooking something in this space with their recent updates in Nest hub space. Recently we have seen that Google Nest Hub will soon show your Fitbit step count, calories burned and Google Fit integration.

There has been talk of a new Nest Hub display with a tablet-like design, and such a device will likely require an upgrade to Google’s smart home platform.

Google Pay

There is a What’s New in Google Pay Session on the google IO Agenda. Google Pay has been in the spotlight again recently. We have seen google is gearing up to rebrand its digital wallet, and Google “Wallet” is coming back. what are their plans with Google Pay is yet to unveil. Hope they dont confuse them with each other just like they have been doing with their messaging apps.

Pixel 6A

Everyone is excited about the cheap sibling of the Pixel 6. Pixel 6a is slated to be released at Google IO this year. unlike every year being launched around July – August, we are hoping to see the budget king will be unveiled at IO and shipping may start later.

Pixel 6A is definitely going to borrow the best from Pixel 6. Recent Leaks unleashed lots of features, it will probably come with a 6.2-inch OLED display, an in-display fingerprint scanner and Google’s Tensor chipset like Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. In terms of optics, the upcoming Google phone will reportedly feature a 12.2MP Sony IMX363 main sensor along with a 12MP Sony IMX355 ultrawide shooter
