Google’s annual I/O developer conference is all set to take off. Sundar Pichai will take to the stage and is expected to announce a couple of updates and some new products. The event will likely see Google CEO Sundar Pichai addressing audience with a the keynote speech, along with a developer keynote later on, which should give an insight into what Google is planning for the coming year.

Expectations are not sky-high this year. We already know that Google’s Android O will be the highlight. May be we will also finally get to know whether the ‘O’ stands for Oreo or Oatmeal Cookies.

Expect to see some new features unveiled, but not a totally revamped Android. Google could also possibly talk about Fuchshia, a new mobile OS that it is said to be working on, which is expected to be a complete revamp of the Android UI.

Other than Android, we also expect the focus to be on iOS. Why? Well, that’s because Google is also expected to bring its Google Assistant to iOS. It is hard to imagine how it is going to pull it off, but yes, it will be interesting to see what’s in store for Google’s iOS users.

Also expect updates on Google VR Daydream project and some updates to its messaging and video calling apps, Allo and Duo.
