Google I/O 2022 will kick off on May 11. The company will host its annual developer event at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in California. Google I/O 2022 will be hosted virtually as well. At the event, the company is expected to give us the first glimpse of Android 13. Google is also expected to unveil the much-rumoured Pixel Watch along with Pixel 6a. Here is everything you should expect from Google I/O 2022.
The highlight announcement of Google I/O 2022 is likely to be Android 13. Google will announce the new Android 13 features at the I/O 2022. The company has already released Android 13 Beta 1 for Pixel smartphones. The beta release has revealed some of the key Android 13 features, such as improved notification permissions, photo picker, language options for individual apps, etc.
Android 13 will also bring a new Photo Picker feature which will allow users to share photos and videos securely with other apps. The upcoming Android update will also allow users to stream apps to Chromebooks. We can expect Android 13 to also introduce some special features for foldable smartphones.
The company is expected to announce the Android 13 roll out timeline at the Google I/O event. We can expect the stable public release to be available for download between August and October 2022.
Google Pixel 6a launch could take place at I/O 2022. The company has been announcing its A-series Pixel smartphones at its annual I/O events. Therefore, we can expect Google to announce the Pixel 6a in May.
Some details of the upcoming Pixel smartphone have leaked in the past. According to reports, the Pixel 6a will feature the same Tensor chip found on the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. It will run Android 12 out of the box.
It is also expected to sport a 6.2-inch OLED display with a Full HD+ resolution. There is no word on whether the 6a will get support for a high refresh rate. The device will feature a dual-camera setup with a 12.2MP main camera and a 12MP ultrawide camera. For selfies, there will be an 8MP front camera sensor.
Google did not launch the Pixel 5a in India, but we can expect the Pixel 6A to arrive this time considering 5G network rollout is expected to take place in the second half of 2022.
Google will debut its first smartwatch, the Pixel Watch, at the Google I/O 2022. A prototype of the Pixel Watch was found lying on a table in a restaurant in the US. The prototype revealed that the Pixel Watch will have a round dial with slightly thick bezels around it. There is a crown on the right side of the watch for navigating through apps and features.
The smartwatch is also expected to come with features like ECG monitoring, heart rate monitoring, calorie counting, step count, etc. Pixel Watch will support Bluetooth 5.2 and is likely to run Wear OS 3.1 out of the box. Google will launch a bunch of silicone straps that will be compatible with its Watch. Details about the Pixel Watch’s availability will be announced at the event on May 11.
