Google I/O, the Mountain View-headquartered tech giant’s annual developer conference is set to take place on May 10 this year. Alongside a brand new android version, rumour mill suggests that the Google I/O 2023 will see covers taken off the much-awaited Pixel foldable and tablet. The company is also expected to officially launch its AI chatbot, Bard.
CEO Sundar Pichai on Wednesday took to Twitter to announce the Google I/O 2023 date. He confirmed that the event will be live-streamed from Mountain View’s Shoreline Amphitheatre on May 10.
The official Google I/O 2023 website doesn’t reveal much as of yet, either.

What can we expect at Google I/O 2023?
It is largely expected that Google might officially unveil some of its announcements from last year, including the likes of Pixel Tablet and Google Glass. It is also expected that the Android 14 Beta might finally see the light of day, as the Developer Preview has already been rolled out.
Google might also announce a new, updated pair of Pixel Buds Pro and a Pixel foldable phone, however, there has been no official confirmation yet.
Additionally, in order to cash in on the ongoing AI chatbot trend, Google may decide to officially launch Bard, its ChatGPT rival, which has already been rolled out to testers. Microsoft-backed OpenAI has already launched its paid subscription service called ChatGPT Plus which offers several benefits to users, including access to the chatbot during server overloads. As Microsoft is wholeheartedly jumping onto the AI-chatbot bandwagon by integrating it with its services such as Bing, it wouldn’t come as a surprise if Google decides to take significant strides in the sector.
