Not able to make it out to Google I/O this year? We don’t blame you, the thing did sell out in a mere hour. Never fret, Google has you covered. Today they revealed their plans for letting those off-site keep tabs on the events and sessions of their yearly developer conference. The keynote speeches will be streamed as always, but this year several Android and Chrome sessions will be livestreamed as well. Those sessions that aren’t will still be uploaded in HD video within 24 hours. All videos, including those being livestreamed, will be captioned and translated using Google Translate into all supported languages.
Aside from the ability to view sessions and keynotes as they unfold, the I/O Live dashboard will be updated in real time with news and information, and those not attending can post questions to the developer Sandbox. Questions with the most votes will be answered. All can be accessed at the I/O Live page, which will be updated with schedule info and other pertinent goods as May’s I/O event quickly approaches.Of course, Phandroid will be on site as well, so be sure to stay tuned here for continual updates as well.
