According to Google, which announced on Wednesday that it would hold its annual developer conference, Google I/O, on May 11 and 12, 2022. Sundar Pichai, Google’s CEO, tweeted that they’ll be live from Shoreline Amphitheater for this year’s #GoogleIO. Join them online between May 11 and 12.
Notably, this year’s Google I/O website implies but does not explicitly affirm that the conference in 2022 would have an in-person component and an online feed. The site says that I/O will live from Shoreline and online on May 11-12, 2022.
Mashable went out to Google to inquire about participants physically attending Shoreline this year, and a corporate official stressed that developers and reporters should not plan ongoing. Actual physical attendance will be limited to Google workers and partners.
Google I/O was abruptly canceled in 2020, as the coronavirus pandemic wreaked havoc on the planet, out of concern for its engineers, workers, and local communities—and to comply with local Bay Area government rules for shelter in place.’ This year, though, appears to be different. Probably. You are assuming, of course, that no shocks occur.
Additionally, Google is said to be launching the Pixel Watch during this year’s event, as seen above in leaked marketing renderings. The Pixel Watch, which is expected to launch with a customized Exynos SoC, might serve as a testbed for the next-generation Google Assistant. Google is anticipated to price the Pixel Watch competitively with Apple’s Watch Series 7, which begins at $399. According to Jon Prosser, the Pixel 6a may also make an appearance, although Google may have delayed its debut until the summer.
When will the Google Pixel Watch be available, and how much will it cost?
There is no definitive release date for the speculated Google Pixel Watch – only speculation based on leaks. Insider claims to have spoken to sources acquainted with the topic who indicate that it will happen in 2022, and more recently, we’ve heard that the big day will be May 26, 2022 — maybe around Google I/O 2022.
The wearable has also been detected in a carrier’s inventory system in the United States, indicating that it is being prepared for sale, making a May debut plausible. That said, a tweet from noted leaker Evleaks claimed a “reliable source” said it would be announced alongside the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL in 2018. A rumor claimed it would launch alongside the Pixel 4 on October 15, 2019 – but of course, neither of those events occurred, and we’re still waiting.
According to a current source, the worldwide processor scarcity will put the Google Pixel 6a debut from May to late July, and the Pixel Watch will follow suit. They’re very confident that such a watch is in development. The Pixel Watch will likely benefit from Google’s acquisition of Fitbit, which may see Fitbit’s wearable expertise applied to Google wristwatch hardware.
Even better, Google said at Google IO 2021 that Wear OS would incorporate features from Samsung’s Tizen OS, hinting what’s to come with the Google Watch.
Additionally, Mashable has reported that Google has placed an order with Samsung for CPUs capable of sensing body motions. Although there is no proof that they are for a wristwatch (they may be for a Pixel phone), a wearable would make sense. That is significant proof that a Pixel Watch is in development.
Regarding pricing, they have no clue how much this watch will cost at the moment. Given that the Pixel series often comprises high-end goods with generally flagship-level pricing, we’d assume that, but we presently lack data to back that.
