Google IO 2020 is not moving forward due to the coronavirus

Coronavirus start means Google IO in 2020 will not happen at all, now Google has previously announced that there will be no physical events, but now it has confirmed that there will be no live or any digital event.

"Due to concerns for the health and safety of our developers, employees, and local communities and in line with the latest 'shelter-in-place' orders from local bay counties - we unfortunately will not be I/O in any capacity this year," reads in a post on the Google IO site.

“Right now, the most important thing we can all do is focus our attention on helping people with the new challenges that we all face.”

The event was scheduled for May 12-14 this year, but the global battle against COVID-19 is taking away many technicians, the events of the last few months. Google has also launched an official online coronavirus hub to provide a reliable source of information about the pandemic.

Android 11 and Pixel 4a

Google IO is traditionally the event that Google uses to announce all the changes in the new version of Android - Android 11 this year - and it's not yet clear exactly what the cancellation event means in this regard.

It doesn't seem like the coronavirus situation will seriously delay the rollout of Android 11 in the coming months, even Google engineers are working from home. The developers already have it.

At Google io 2019 we have Android 10 news as well as the launch of Pixel 3a phones, and this year we expected to see Pixel 4a arrive. That mid-range phone can also be opened with a blog entry and a press release.

We of course bring you all the Android 11 and Pixel 4a news as Google announces that, even if Google io is not moving forward. It looks like it will be several months before we get another major technology event that we can attend in person.
