Are you one of the many people that missed the 59 minutes window for buying a Google I/O 2011 ticket? Luckily, Google has your back. The company just announced on its blog that this year’s Google I/O will be streamed live at I/O Live. In the past, Google would stream only the keynotes on its YouTube page. This year, however, they’ll stream the keynotes plus the Android and Chrome sessions. For the other sessions, Google will upload the HD video recordings within 24 hours. Here’s a summary of what’s new this year:
- Watch livestream video feeds from our two largest session rooms from 9:00 a.m PST to 6:00 p.m. PST during both days of the conference. This will include streaming of the keynotes, as in years past, as well as–new for 2011–the addition of sessions from Android and Chrome. We’ll also aim to post HD video recordings from sessions that are not livestreamed within 24 hours.
- Read captions from the livestreamed sessions in real-time. Plus, to make sure all our content is accessible, all remaining videos will also be captioned. For international developers, captions will be machine translated to all languages that are supported by Google Translate.
- Be one of the first to know by getting your news direct from the source. The latest announcements and news will be added to our I/O Live dashboard in real-time.
- Submit your questions to our Sandbox developers. We’ll post answers for the questions with the most votes.
Sounds good to me, I specifically like the idea of watching the Android sessions in real-time instead of waiting a whole day to watch them. Also, the I/O Live dashboard will be the perfect one-stop location for a complete coverage of Google I/O. Will you be glued to I/O Live come May 10 like most of us?
