Google has cancelled its I/O developer conference, its biggest event of the year, in the wake of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The Google I/O 2020 was scheduled to take place between May 12 to May 14 at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California. It isn’t immediately clear if Google will be hosting an online-only event to make some of the announcements it was supposed to make on-ground at I/O 2020.
Google has announced that it will provide a full refund to all I/O 2020 attendees by March 13.The I/O developer conference is not only Google’s biggest event of the year, it is also a big tech event for developers and partners. As well as for tech enthusiasts invested into the whole Android ecosystem. For years now, Google has taken to I/O to talk all things software (and some hardware), the sort of things that would set the tone for the rest of the year.
