How to watch Google I/O 2014 keynote live

Google’s annual developers conference kicked off earlier at the Moscone West Convention Center in San Francisco, California with feverish speculation surrounding what it might choose to unveil at the two day long event.

The centrepiece of the whole event is the keynote address that commences proceedings at 1700 BST [0900 PDT] pacific time on 25 June and the best part of all is that it will be streamed in its entirety through Google’s website.

If you are interested in finding out what Google has planned for the coming months and year ahead you should point your browser to this link where you can stream the proceedings live from California.

If you don’t happen to be at a computer when the stream takes place, Google will post recordings of the keynote onto a dedicated YouTube channel and this goes for any of the other sessions that are part of the streaming schedule.

Google I/O 2014 is rumoured to be where we will first see Android 5.0 Lollipop and learn a bit about what will make it so special. In addition to this there are rumours surrounding a new Nexus 10 tablet, Android TV, more Android Wear smartwatches and a lot more besides.

In the past the event has seen the first tentative footsteps taken by Android, the birth of Chrome, the unveiling of the first Nexus 7, Google Glass and Google+. Put simply, expect something big.

Both days of the conference will get extensive coverage right here on ITProPortal.com and there is a live blog including commentary, picture and analysis that will be constantly updated during the keynote later this afternoon.

For even more detail Google has launched an official Google I/O 2014 app that includes everything for those attending including schedules, venue details, maps, speaker information and plenty more besides. It also gives those not attending a perfect opportunity to keep pace with what is going on and can be downloaded here.
