The Google I / O 2023 event promises to bring various innovations to the world of Google and Android: it is very close now. The event provides in-depth opportunities for Android developers and beyond. But it will also give us enthusiasts some interesting things Android 14 news, some highly anticipated hardware launches, and AI announcements. The company has already announced the official schedule, although some announcements are to be confirmed. So let’s try to understand what news we can expect from Google I/O 2023.
Google I/O 2023, the news we expect from the event
Google’s annual developer conference is usually held in May, and this year is no exception. The event will take place on May 10th. And it will be in presence again, like Google I/O 2022, but with a limited number of live viewers and it seems that Google is encouraging most people to follow the event online.
We will be able to follow the event directly from the Google site, with the main keynote starting at 10 am Pacific time, which is 7 pm Italian time, and will continue for three hours until 10 pm. The company has announced that there will be four main themes: the mobile world, the web one, a section dedicated to artificial intelligence and one to the cloud.

A year ago, at the developer conference, Google presented the Google Pixel Tablet, a device that combines the best of Android and Pixel in a larger format. However, the company has not yet launched the tablet on the market and consumers are waiting to know when will they be able to buy it and at what price. Google will likely solve this mystery at Google I/O 2023 and finally announce the release date and cost of the Pixel Tablet.
The announcement is almost certain – but it remains to be seen whether it will also arrive in Italy.
Another product expected to debut at Google I/O 2023 is the Google Pixel 7a, the successor to Google’s popular budget phone. According to rumors, the Pixel 7a will have the same Tensor G2 processor as the Pixel 7, the chip created by Google to take artificial intelligence to the next level. It is thought that the Pixel 7a will be available for purchase immediately after the eventunlike the Pixel 6a which was announced in May 2022 but only went on sale in late July.
Another phone that may be arriving soon is the Google Pixel Fold, Google’s first brochure. Rumors say that the Pixel Fold will be launched in June and that it will be possible to pre-order it on the Google Store immediately after the event. Although it remains to be seen whether Google will want to launch it worldwide or if it will choose selected markets – something already seen for Big G and likely for a very expensive leaflet.
Other possibilities new hardware
We may perhaps get a preview of the series Google Pixel 8 which should be released at the end of the year, as Google also did for the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro last year.
Also, we could hear something on the successor to the Google Pixel Watch, Google’s smart watch. The paucity of rumors about new home devices Google Nestcoupled with the fact that Google is retooling its Assistant team to focus more on the suo chatbot Bard, makes us think that there will be no significant news on Nest Assistant-powered products. But you never know.
Software news in Mountain View
An important space will have Android 14, which the bravest developers and users can already try in beta version. This version, for the moment, does not present major changes compared to Android 13 in terms of appearance and functioning. But it hides many interesting news. Some of these features will likely be officially announced at Google I/O 2023, at which time the Beta 2 on Android 14scheduled for the month of May.
In addition to the news that Google has in store for Android 14, we will also see the future versions of ChromeOS. Google will also organize some panels dedicated to specific topics, such as Google Pay e Google Wallet, Material Design, Google Home e Internet. Being a developer conference, there will also be room to dig deeper Dart, Flutter, Firebase e machine learning. As always, Google will show us the potential of its services, from Maps to Gmail. But we think that a great deal of attention will be paid to artificial intelligence.
Artificial intelligence at the center
In a recent New York Times article, Google unleashed the code red after the debut of ChatGPT 4.0 and Bing chat-based search. The company responded with an event Live from Paris arranged quicklydisplaying its chat-based search engine, Google Bard, released in the US and UK in April 2023. A product with several shortcomings and which has given often funny responses. But Google thinks it’s essential to maintain its primacy in search: so we expect news about it during Google I / O 2023.
Bard isn’t the only new thing the company has to offer on the AI front. Indeed, it should presentation solutions of image generation with AI. And then a third iteration of AI Test Kitchenwhich the company uses to publicly test future AI features. Shopping Try-on is a YouTube feature that uses green screen-like technology to help you try on clothes without leaving home, similar to solutions launched by Amazon. While Maya is a tool that can visualize shoes in 3D.
There will also be one video summary tool which generates another shorter video from a longer one. And then a tool for creating wallpapers for Google Pixel phones and one made for other companies to help them create your own AI applications.
Important for developers would be alwhich could enter a be part of Android Studio, the Google developer environment, writing code based on the requests of programmers. In short: AI will be the leitmotif of many new announcements from Google.
These are all the most important rumors, but the official news will only arrive at Google I / O 2023 on May 10th. We will keep you posted.
