Google I/O 2020 is cancelled! We know, we said this a couple weeks ago, however, at that time, Google was still going to host I/O virtually. Due to “shelter in place” advisories, things have been entirely cancelled. Stay tuned to the site, we’ll bring you all the announcements that Google will likely still trickle out over the coming months, including more Android 11 builds, and hopefully a line of new Pixel smartphones.

Speaking of Pixel phones, how about these leaks and rumors for the Google Pixel 5? You like that?
