Android fans, it’s that special time of the year! Google I/O 2015 is about to start and, like every year, it starts off with a bang. The stage of the Google I/O keynote is where the Google universe reveals its trajectory for the next year, and it all goes down in just two hours.
Our Josh Vergara is on the ground at Moscone Center in San Francisco, and he will bring you his impressions later today. Back at home, we’re gearing up for an avalanche of coverage as we bring you news as it happens.

What to expect
Android M is all but confirmed to be announced at Google I/O today, but that’s just one of many announcements coming soon. Rumor has it Google will show off a new Photos service, will overhaul the Android permissions system, and launch a new Android-based IoT operating system, code named Brillo. We expect updates for Android Wear and perhaps some new smartwatches; Android Auto and Android TV are due for updates as well. And then there are the cool projects that Google’s ATAP division is working on, including Project Ara, Project Tango, and more. Expect to see chief of Android Sundar Pichai take the stage, design guru Matias Duarte, and probably even Google’s CEO and co-founder Larry Page.
