Google has started taking registrations for its upcoming Google I/O 2016 developer conference, which is scheduled from May 18 to May 20 this year. The registration window for the conference is open from March 8 to March 10 during which people can register themselves online and get their hands on the tickets.
The chosen applications from the raffle-style registration process will have to pay $900 (roughly Rs. 61,000) each for the tickets to attend Google I/O 2016. An academic ticket will cost $300. Interested users can directly visit the website for more details. The website also has a countdown until the Google I/O 2016 conference day. Users even have the option to request for refund for the tickets until April 29. Hovering the pointer at any of the dull grey numbers makes it colourful with animations.
The Google I/O 2016 developer conference will take place at Shoreline Amphitheater, Mountain View, California this year. The event will also be streamed for those who are not able to attend it. It is worth mentioning that Google back in January already announced the conference dates and venue.
Pichai shared the news on social media adding that the event was heading back "to the neighbourhood where it all started 10 years ago: Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View." The company has for the past several years held its annual event at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, which is why its decision to hold the event at a different could have a special purpose.
The company typically utilises the event to announce the new Android version and make available its developer preview to enthusiasts. The company, for instance, announced Android M (since lengthened to Marshmallow) at last year's developer conference. The company also announces major upcoming changes to apps and its cloud products. At Google I/O 2016, the company is expected to introduce Android N.
