The next Google I/O event is scheduled for May 7 to 9 2019, at the Shoreline Amphitheater, Mountain View, California. These details were uncovered as part of some code relating to a cryptic Tweet on the subject. This conference may focus on the release of Android 10 (Q).

The yearly Google I/O event will take place from May 7 to 9 in California's Shoreline Amphitheater. This information had been hinted at in a mysterious tweet (which has since been deleted). That post was also a fair indication that Google had set the traditional puzzle that gives the actual date and location of the event when solved. It was eventually tracked down in some code. This year, Till Kottmann, a developer at Lawnchair, is associated with the discovery of this hidden clue.

Google I/O 2019 is likely to see the eventual launch of Android Q. So far, we know that this major update to the mobile OS brings changes such as more effective system-wide dark themes, the possibility of a desktop mode and expanded sensor toggles. The conference may offer much more detail on Android 10, however, the least of which would be its actual code-name. 

Last year's I/O sparked some controversy, particularly over Duplex and the off-putting ability to interact with real people using a processor-generated voice. There is no guarantee that its successor will introduce anything like this cause for consternation; although if so, Google could be more clear about its capabilities and limits this time.

At present, there seem to be few hardware highlights for I/O 2019; on the other hand, it could clear up the uncertainty around the prospect of both Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 4 models. Besides all this, we can expect the usual slew of news on updates and breakthroughs in Google AI, apps and services at the Mountain View event.
