Google I/O keynote

We're live from San Francisco this week where Google's bringing coders together from the far reaches of the globe for its annual developer conference. Wednesday morning is the kickoff event — the two-hour keynote address in which we'll see plans for what's next, updates on what's current — and maybe a surprise or two.

And we're bringing it all to you, live. Below you can both watch the keynote in video and tune into our live blog coverage. You won't find better Google I/O coverage anywhere else! And for all the stories coming out of the keynote and the conference this week, be sure to visit our Google I/O 2014 event page!

I know it's a little thing but I really appreciate you putting in the converted time in the article. Saves me having to work out when the event starts here in the UK.

Thank you!

4 pm GMT for those who prefer not having to use online convert tools every time they read an article on these sites.

Only 2 hours and 21 minutes left.......

I hate waiting :/

Got Nexus?

that one part of the year when san francisco becomes home...

hmmm says:

I hope they spend a good amount of time on Android. It is the only thing I really am interested in. The wearables and home automation stuff bore me but it seems like that might be a focus this year.

2 hours to talk about all of the things. Not a lot of time for any of it really

My body...

acrewdog says:

Why are they presenting this in a hallway? The constant stream of people walking by is distracting and gives the impression that many people there do not care what is being presented.

Abionic says:

Damn... Are all these bobbing heads leaving...

turb0wned says:

This is pretty disappointing so far. Android OEMs will just shit all over this material design stuff.

Abionic says:

What kind of smartphone is he using?

ljhughes8 says:

I like the notification update

Nice security feature

Wow... She could stop bullets with that smartwatch!

Let's hope significant improvement in the battery life department.

I like the battery historian

Apparently a "protestor"

Queue the Wrap it Up Box.

Al the snycing is nice but the battery life.

BOOOOOO! Samsung before Moto!

ljhughes8 says:

Google could be a easy add on

Android auto head unit?

Abionic says:

Your smartwatch can control your tv.

This is madness!

THIS... IS... SPARTA!!!

Posted via Android Central App-

Via HTC One

Yeah. I was pretty much 100% against "smart" watches until today. But, the way Google has connected everything seamlessly suddenly makes the watch really interesting.

Now, they just need to up the battery life to something like a month so you will never, or at least rarely, have to bring an additional charger with you when you're on the go.

ljhughes8 says:

I like the chrome cast update

dirtyjudo says:

Where is the Hangouts update?

Posted via Android Central App

chad783 says:

Agreed. Surprised that they didn't announce the Voice and Hangouts will be joining. Seems like it was heavy on wearables. No G+ updates and no big apps and no name for the new operating system. The "L" system...really?

...but... Knox is just bloatware... that's what "they" have always said! :)

Nice to see that at least Google are smart enough to appreciate clever security features and adopt them.

Abionic says:

... You are building robots that kill people...

Babababhahhahahahahahah....

Lol. These people are freaking insane.

Abionic says:

I hope there is hardware. Debug... Zzzzz

MERCDROID says:

So, no Nexus device. And, we don't know what L stands for...

Abionic says:

L stands for = what? I woke up early for this!?

MERCDROID says:

Haha!

@mercdroid: No Nexus device yet.. I'm still holding out hope that they'll put out at least one more Nexus phone and tablet before the end of the year.

MERCDROID says:

Yeah, me too.

Hay!

Did they ask us to guess the new name of Android L?
I guess 'Android LightHouse'
