Google has announced the dates for this year's Google IO developer conference. The company's biggest annual event will be held virtually from May 18 to May 20 and will be free to attend for all.

The three-day conference will include discussions, hands-on learning with Google experts, and a first look at Google's latest developer products. In addition, the company is anticipated to introduce its new line of Pixel smartphones during the event.

Though the complete lineup of the Google IO 2021 will be made available at a later date, Google provides a hint at what to expect from the event. It says that the event will host -

- Consumer and Developer Keynotes with focus on company and product news

- Technical Sessions with focus on product announcements and how to adopt new features.

- Workshops and Ask Me Anything Sessions (AMAs)

- Meetups for online visitors through facilitated forums

- Interactive Sandboxes for developers to try Google's new products and features

Among these, Workshops, AMAs and Meetups require registration and reservation. All other formats will be available on demand.

Those interested can get themselves registered for the event through Google's IO event webpage. With the registration, Google promises access to Workshops, AMAs, personalized event suggestions and badges, access to live Q&As, and the ability to chat inside I/O Adventure.

Google skipped the event last year in light of the Covid-19 pandemic that affected millions across the world. This year's IO developer conference is hence expected to be full of updates in several segments that Google pursues excellence in.

The event is mostly renowned as the debuting platform for Google's new Android OS version each year. This year, the company is expected to announce Android 12. Google made public the first look of the version with the Android 12 Developer Preview released earlier in March. After removing any bugs being reported by the developer community, the company will present the user-friendly version of the new OS at the IO 2021.

So if you are among those waiting for the event to start, you can register yourself for it till then. In the meanwhile, you can also try solving the I/O 2021 puzzle put up by Google on the dedicated webpage.
