Behind closed doors in Mountain View, California, hard working Googlers bring to life all manner of cool services and Android apps. We are seeing one of these new Android apps today, but we are not sure we were supposed to. Introducing Interactive Events by Google.
A first glance, Interactive Events looks like an amazing tool to find and navigate events in your area, presumably providing vendor lists and floor plans for that comic-con or RV convention, you know, whichever you are into. Functionality we’ve seen out of the Google I/O apps of years past. However, Interactive Events does not actually do any of these things at this time.
Whether left in place accidentally, or the slip up was in actually publicly launching the app, Interactive Events immediately greets new installs with Google’s dogfood warning. Apparently, the app is not meant for non-Googlers, you know, not meant for you or I to see or use. As such, we expect an update really soon, or to see the app removed from the Google Play Store.
One thing is for sure, if this somewhat outdated looking app goes live with local event information, we will have plenty more to say about it, but for now, unless you have a valid event code, or event QR Code to scan, we can only explore the first few screens of Interactive Events.
Check out Interactive Events in the Google Play Store for more details. It’s free.
What would you say to a local events calendar and guide from Google – would you use an app like Interactive Events?
