Google I/O 2015 scheduled for May 28-29 in San Francisco!

Google's just announced that this year's developer conference will be May 28-29 at Moscone West in San Francisco. Registration will start at 9 a.m. Pacific time March 17 and run through 5 p.m. Pacific time March 19.

Like last year, Google says applications will be selected at random, so there shouldn't be that first-minute-and-done crush.

The schedule's a bit sparse at the moment, without even so much as a keynote address being listed, which would be a pretty major departure from previous years. On the other hand, that would put the focus back on the developers (which is where it should be, really) instead of on the dog-and-pony show (or robots and such) as keynotes tend to be. We'll have to see how that shakes out, and chances are what we're really looking at is more of a placeholder.

The conference is also a month earlier than the last couple years, so read into that what you want. Google I/O 2014 was where we got our first look at Android L (which later became Lollipop), as well as a developer preview of the latest OS.

  • Yes! Android M!!! Lollipop is old news.... Posted via the Android Central App
  • And yet most people still don't have it.. I love Android, but the time it takes for updates to roll out for most devices I have to admit is wearing a bit thin for me.
  • -^^^^^^^^^^This 100times this Posted via the Android Central App
  • If only Google themselves would provide a solution for consumers who REALLY valued the latest software...
  • LOL Posted via the Android Central App
  • They do. And those who strive for latest updates go for the Nexus line.
  • Sarcasm Posted via the Android Central App
  • By google I/O, maybe 15% of users will have android L. Sadly that is just how android works.
  • You clearly have no idea how Android 'works'.

  • Perfect name, especially for those who haven't receive "L", yet. Slow as...
  • I'm still waiting for Lollipop lap lol! Posted via the Android Central App
  • Funny thing is that android lollipop is running on kit kat devices already. Look no further than Googles apps. Download Google launcher and the only thing missing is the settings and notification. What I'm trying to say is lollipop is not that exciting. Once you get it, you'll soon find yourself itching for m.
  • Good point well put. Posted via Android Central App
  • Agree with you - but then if it is not exciting why release ? I believe developer release was around last I/O and many devices do not have it yet (almost a year later). Google needs to find out what went wrong.
  • I don't think they are going to announce M at this time. Lollipop is yet to gain traction, albeit ton of issues to solve in it.
  • Exactly what i thought, dont know if we'll see M so soon, given the push for material design , etc
  • actually i was going to agree with you but after thinking about jb and kk, it made me think....maybe lollipop was the whole purpose of introducing "material design" and the "new os look" since jb and kk were still branded as 4.x.x, maybe M will be 5.1 thus clearing out all these buggy lollipops that everyone is complaining about and maybe well see M by end of this year? long shot lol
  • It was way more than just material design. Don't forget all under the hood stuff. ART, Volta, low latency audio API, camera2 API, render thread, OpenGL 3.1. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Lol 2 days for registration. Doubt they will last 5 minutes.
  • Cool so they'll be talking about Mince Meat Pie while my Galaxy Tab S is finally installing Lollipop.
  • Double post by way of the steadfast sprint network.
  • If only that screenshot was Google Play Music. SIGH
  • Hopefully M will iron out the myriad of bugs that make up lollipop, or Google will have a stable release of lollipop by then! Posted via Android Central App
  • Nexus 5 refresh plz.. TY!!! One can dream anyhow :)
  • Nexus 7.5" LTE smartphone.
  • Let's hope they do pic Developers, others are just full of the press wanting the first scoop. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Thanks for posting this. I have the registration start date, March 17, in my calendar. Hopefully I will win the registration lottery and get a ticket this year. I hope remember how this work and their credit card, or whatever they have backing their Goggle Play account, will get hit with the conference fee as soon as they put their name in the lottery. They will get refunded if they do not get selected.
  • WOW..with this Google I/O would be an amazing event ..i would like to add few other things to the events activities and expectations here :
