What to expect
Every developer has their own opinion on what surprises the Google I/O has in store for us. But here’s some of the potential highlights:
Lollipop? KitKat has hardly rolled out onto the majority of Android devices, and already the tech community is buzzing with anticipation of the next in the dessert-themed alphabetic progression.
Google Glass upgrades? Although Google’s wearable tech has gone on sale in the UK, Glass is still far away from a consumer version. It’s about time to see some big improvements.
A Google watch? Everyone expected Apple to unveil its iWatch at the WWDC. So why not expect something similar from Google? With manufacturers from LG to Motorola already creating their own versions of wrist tech, Google is expected to show off some fancy new improvements to its Android Wear platform.
