Google I/O 2015 Android app released into Google Play – 14 days to go

Google I/O 2015
Google’s developer conference I/O 2015 starts in just 14 days, and after releasing their schedule last week have now released an update for their Google I/O Android app in preparation for the commencement of the event.

The Google I/O website works quite well as a web app, with Chrome notifications now letting you receive updates when events changed, were ready to start etc. but over the years, we’ve all come to enjoy a native app, and that’s what Google has delivered.

The Google I/O app has all the features an attendee, whether attending remotely or onsite could want. The app contains the full Google I/O schedule, as well as a map of the Moscone Centre West – and for people attending the event: Pre-event Wi-Fi configuration. The full list of features include:

  • Explore the conference agenda, with details on themes, topics and speakers
  • Add events to a personalized schedule
  • Get reminders before events in “My schedule” start
  • Watch the keynote and sessions live stream
  • Sync your schedule between all of your devices and the I/O website
  • Guide yourself using the vector-based conference map
  • Follow public social I/O related conversations on Google+ and Twitter
  • See I/O content from previous years in the Video screen
  • Use the Widget to check your upcoming events directly from your home screen

As you would expect from Google, there’s a well defined tablet experience in the app as well as a phone layout.

With Google streaming their Keynote and sessions, this is a great tool for any Google or Android fan to have installed on their phone or tablet, so head over to Google Play and install it now.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
