Watch the Google I/O 2018 keynote live stream right here. It takes place today at 6pm BST.

Every summer Google hosts its annual developers' conference, Google I/O. It's of more interest to developers than consumers, but the opening keynote typically contains some interesting information on upcoming Google software (this is not a hardware event).

In 2018 we expect to hear more about Android P, Wear OS, Android Things and the Google Assistant.

When is Google I/O 2018?

Google I/O 2018 will take place 8-10 May 2018. 

The developers' conference will be held in the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California.

How to watch the Google I/O 2018 live stream

There will be a live stream of the Google I/O 2018 keynote, which we will embed at the top of this page as soon as it is available.

The keynote will take place on Tuesday at 10am in California, which is 6pm in the UK.

What will be announced at Google I/O 2018?

For consumers, the two big announcements are likely to be Android P, the next Google operating system for phones and tablets, and Wear OS, its recently rebranded smartwatch OS. We may also hear news on Google Home and Google Assistant.

As we saw last year, Android P was announced ahead of I/O, but the final consumer release won't arrive until late August. It's probable that a new public beta version will be released at I/O.

It is possible to install the developer preview on consumer devices, but unless you know what you're doing its usually best to wait for the full release. In August Android P will be available to recent Google Pixel devices, and at September's IFA 2018 we will likely see the first devices running Android P out of the box.
