How to watch the Google I/O 2024 keynote live

Must read

Google I/O is gearing up to go live on May 14, 2024. With it, the company is looking to make some big announcements surrounding AI and possibly upcoming hardware. This guide will detail how you can tie in live to watch Google I/O 2024.

What to expect from Google I/O in 2024

Some of what we originally thought would be on the docket for Google I/O has already come to fruition. The Google Pixel 8a has already been announced by the company, taking the spot as the latest budget option in the Pixel lineup. A Pixel Tablet variation without a dock was also made available, which could be considered a minor hardware release.

With those two offerings out of the way, does that mean Google will take the time on stage to tease the Pixel 9 and its three variations? The phone already has a swell of leaks and rumors surrounding it, though that phone would likely break through to the market in October, following Google’s general release schedule.

To answer, we’re not sure if Google plans on teasing further hardware. We do imagine that more AI announcements will come out of I/O, particularly in terms of expansion features in more apps that are used daily. Google Maps or Search would fall into that category and would benefit from a deeper integration with Google’s LLMs.

How to watch Google I/O

Google has historically held its I/O event in Mountain View, CA – the company’s long-time HQ right outside of San Francisco. From that amphitheater, we may see some of the announcements we’re expecting, as well as possibly teasers and mentions that haven’t been rumored yet.

The main keynote will start at 10 a.m. PT on Tuesday, May 14 (5 p.m. UTC.) The event will be hosted live from stage for a small ion-person audience. The event will be streamed in a couple of ways.

There are two ways to watch Google’s keynote at 10 a.m. PT. The first way is to visit the website – io.google/2024 – sometime before the keynote begins. A countdown clock is visible before the event, so you can keep an eye on how much time you have.

The second way is through Google’s YouTube channel, which we recommend and is shown below. The website pulls the live stream from YouTube for the final result, and watching that way proves to be the most up-to-date method. For the deaf and hard of hearing, Google will also stream an ASL-interpreted version of the event here.

Google I/O 2024 is going to be an exciting event. We’re hoping to see some interesting AI and hardware developments – or maybe both.
