We’re just under a day away from Google’s annual I/O event and if you’re not able to be at Google I/O 2016 in person, Google wants you to get in on the action with a 360-degree live stream of the opening keynote. Broadcast live on YouTube, the stream is likely to be indicative of the one of the big trends from this year’s event: Virtual Reality.

VR you ready? Watch the #io16 keynote live on @YouTube 360 this Wed 10AM PT. https://t.co/eZ3yrQCfK0pic.twitter.com/h5ppO9sVWe

The live-stream will allow you to experience the keynote as if you were there in person yourself and if you’ve snapped a Virtual Reality headset – or Google Cardboard for that matter – you can slot your phone in and get the entire experience as well.

Google I/O is also expected to bring more information on Android N – and possibly the official name for it – as well as both, Augmented and Virtual Reality. There’s an entire track dedicated to this and the schedule for Google I/O shows that Android VR is definitely going to be a big theme this year.

This won’t be all however, as there’s likely to be a lot more hands on time with the Project Tango smartphone from Google and Lenovo, ahead of its summer shipping date. Also on the agenda for I/O 2016 is self driving cars, Google Play, Project Ara, Smart Home, Google Glass 2.0, Android Auto and a whole lot more. The first keynote kicks off at 10am PDT tomorrow and of course, we’ll be there in force bringing you all the information as it happens.
