Google I/O 2019: Top Things to Expect
May 5, 2019

New Pixels and Android Q.

Google’s developer keynote is set to happen this week, and many are already excited with the plethora of new hardware and services that the company is preparing to announce. The annual Google I/O 2019 will take place on May 7th and here are some of the top things that are expected to be announced:

Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL – The Pixel 4 isn’t due to be announced until later this year, but Google is also releasing a less expensive version of the Pixel 3 that’s called Pixel 3a and the Pixel 3a XL. Both smartphones will have less powerful hardware, though the cameras (which is one of the best things about the Pixels) will be the same, so expect your pictures to still be awesome.

Android Q – Another highlight of Google I/O 2019 will, of course, be Android Q. A developer preview for the upcoming operating system has already rolled out a few weeks earlier and gave us a glimpse of some of its new features. Some of these features included a new theming software along with an increased focus on user privacy by limiting how apps access your location.

Expect a more detailed summary of Android Q’s features during Google I/O 2019, and if we’re lucky we might even get to know what dessert they’re naming it after.

Google Apps – Google is also expected to reveal new features on its entire suite of apps that includes Assistant, Lens, YouTube, Chrome, Photos, etc. Not many details are available, but there’s a good chance Google will be highlighting them during the keynote.

Chrome OS – Also expect some new features to arrive on Chrome OS, the operating system running on the company’s line of notebooks and tablets. Some rumored features arriving to Chrome OS include Portrait mode support on the Camera app, increased security, and even Google Assistant integration.

Google is also expected to dive more into its other services, so expect a jam-packed session. Google I/O will be live-streamed on YouTube so you don’t miss out on the fun.
