What to expect at Google IO 2023
Google IO rumors are still pretty early, but based on a combination of recent leaks and previous editions of the conference, we can get a good idea of the kinds of announcements we might see. increase.
Here’s the main features to expect at Google IO 2023, in rough order. All the more so when you add in “one more” bonus like Google’s AR Live Translate glasses.
1. Google Bard and AI Announcement
Google is somehow tied to AI chatbots. On the one hand, we need to show that we have the technology to compete with ChatGPT-powered Bing. That’s why we announced Google Bard in February and said the chatbot would be available to the public “in the coming weeks.”
But according to CNBC
(opens in new tab), at a recent internal Google meeting it seems to have become very clear that “the bard is not search”. As such, Google IO 2023 will likely present his AI chatbot as an “experimental conversational AI service” rather than a next-generation version of Google Search. It remains to be seen if Byrd will be seen in public before or during the conference.

Chatbots are just one part of AI technology, and Google’s IO conference has traditionally seen previews of artificial intelligence and machine learning working across apps. For example, at Google IO 2018 we got a glimpse of Google Duplex, a virtual agent that can make phone calls, but at Google IO 2022 we’ll see AI subtly woven into products like Google Docs. got it.
Expect to see more of the same at Google IO 2023, but with a much stronger AI theme than last year’s developer conference.For example, according to a New York Times report
(opens in new tab)we were able to see features such as “shopping try-on” (a YouTube feature that allows you to try on virtual clothes at home) and Dall-E’s rival that helps you create and edit images. 2. Android 14 overview
The latest Android OS is already in developer preview
(opens in new tab) A beta version is planned for mid-March to April. However, Android 14 won’t be available to the public until his August, so expect Google to spend a lot of time outlining new tricks in its software at Google IO 2023.

Some expected new features include satellite communication support and the ability to handle passkeys. This may eventually replace passwords and is considered more secure and easier to use.
Unsurprisingly, Android 14 is also expected to bring quality of life improvements, including improved efficiency, better battery life, and improved accessibility features. Operating system security may also be enhanced, but some phones, including the Google Pixel 4a, will not be able to take advantage of the Android 14 update.
3. Introducing the Google Pixel 7a
Google hasn’t been consistent with its mid-range A-model Pixel launches, but it’s still possible we’ll see a Google Pixel 7a.
As with the Google Pixel 6a, we expect a successor to be announced at least in May, and Google IO 2023 would be the smartest place to reveal it. There is a nature. For example, the Pixel 6a wasn’t available for purchase until two months after its July 2022 announcement.

So far, we haven’t had a ton of leaks for the Pixel 7a, but it’s expected to feature Google’s latest Tensor G2 chipset and a design very similar to the Google Pixel 7 (meaning no headphone jack). will be
A few hands-on videos were also suggested in January that the Pixel 7a could have a 90Hz screen, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, but at this point this is all speculation. Expect Google to provide official skinnies on stage at Google IO 2023.
4. Google Pixel tablet launch date (finally)
The Google Pixel Tablet was unveiled to the world at Google IO 2022, but incredibly, it hasn’t actually gone on sale yet. This may change in Google IO 2023.
Despite concerns that the Pixel Tablet is headed for the infamous Google Graveyard, the company has confirmed that it is aiming to launch the Pixel Tablet in 2023. When is the problem?

An announcement is likely at Google’s traditional Pixel event in October, but it seems likely that the company will at least mention the tablet at its developer conference in May.
After all, it will run Android 12L, designed for large-screen devices, and will also feature Google’s latest Tensor G2 chipset. This makes it a candidate for our guide to the best Android tablets, so we’ll hear more soon.
5. The debut of the Google Pixel Fold
Another thing to submit to the “maybe” category of Google IO 2023 is the long-awaited announcement of the Google Pixel Fold.
Google’s work on foldable phones was expected to arrive sometime after late 2022.

Unfortunately, those rumors have dampened our excitement for the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 rival.The leaked image could be a chunkier Pixel phone with surprisingly large bezels above and below the display. suggesting sexuality.
Expected to cost around $1,799 (approximately £1,520 / A$2,660), it’s becoming a niche mobile phone. But the suggestion that the Pixel Fold could have three cameras, like the Google Pixel 7 Pro, has sparked our interest again. If so, it could potentially be the best foldable camera phone.
6. New tricks for Google Maps, Google Lens and more
A staple of the Google IO conference, flashy new tricks for services like Google Maps, Google Translate, and Google Lens disappeared for months before finally launching.
For example, at Google IO 2022, we saw the immersive view of Google Maps for the first time. This seemed very handy for everything from checking out neighborhood vibes to becoming our favorite new photo buddy.
(Image credit: Google)
But it wasn’t until Google’s “Live from Paris” event in February that the feature actually launched in five cities (London, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, and Tokyo). So whatever is announced at Google IO 2023, stay tuned to see it on your phone or laptop.
Still, AI is expected to be a big theme at the conference, so we could see some very impressive updates to Google Translate, Google Maps, Google Docs, Google Lens, and more.
7. Wear OS Makeover
Last year was a big year for Google-powered smartwatches. At Google IO 2022, the Google Pixel Watch with Wear OS 3 was finally announced.
Since then, the platform that rivals the Apple Watch has grown steadily, thanks to the arrival of Wear OS 3.5 and some of the best Wear OS watches we’ve seen so far, including the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro. .

What will we see at Google IO 2023? No big rumors so far, but some new Wear OS design guidelines suggest that Google is really pushing for consistency and refinement of the software experience. and a new Wear OS player like Xiaomi is heavily rumored.
It may be too early to preview Watch OS 4 at Google IO 2023, but expect to hear some announcements that give another powerful nudge to the smartwatch platform’s growing momentum.
