With Google I/O, the biggest Android event of the year, about to begin, Google announced that those who didn’t make it to the conference can still get their questions answered via Google Plus.

Google I/O is the most important event for the Android community, the time when the overseers of the green robot we all love so much reveal their plans for the next year. In 2012, Google I/O was a blast – the popular Nexus 7 was introduced, we got a new version of Android, and Sergey Brin showed off Glass in the most spectacular way possible.

It’s no wonder that so many Android enthusiasts are excited to attend I/O, and this year was no exception – the tickets for the event sold out in minutes, causing widespread frustration among those who didn’t manage to grab their ticket.

Google is however eager to let more people participate to I/O, even if it’s only virtually. If you have a question or a request about I/O, submit it via Google Plus using the hashtag #request and #io13. A small team of Googlers will be at Moscone West in San Francisco taking pictures, talking to developers, and answering your requests and questions.

The program was announced by Google community manager Melissa Daniels.

There you have it – if you’re curious about I/O and the sessions, or you just have a burning question about Android, just fire up Google Plus and ask away. Don’t forget the hashtags.

Stay tuned for our Google I/O coverage! We’d have a few questions for Googlers – let’s  see, the next version of Android, the new Nexus 7, the X Phone, the Google smartwatch…. What would you ask Google?
