Even if you're not going to Google I/O 2016 in person, you'll still be able to get a small taste of what it's like to be there thanks to a 360-degree live stream of the day-one keynote.

Google I/O 2016 keynote to get VR treatment with 360-degree live stream

The stream will take place live on YouTube, allowing you to look all around as if you were sitting right in the audience yourself.

If you want to make things even more immersive, you can, of course, slot your phone into a Google Cardboard headset to get the full virtual reality experience as well.

As a reminder, Google I/O kicks off at 10 a.m. PT on May 18, and we'll be here with a liveblog and all of the latest news as it unfolds. So be sure to keep it locked to Android Central and, in the meantime, let us know in the comments how you're planning to stream the keynote.
