Your Guide to Google I/O 2014, From Android to Apps and More
Earlier this month, Google unveiled its new Google I/O 2014 app for Android to help participants prepare for the company's developer conference. The app can help attendees and remote participants track the events they want to attend, as well as set up their own customized schedules. Among the big announcements expected at this year's conference is a rumored new health data tracking service called Google Fit as part of its recent push into high-tech wearables, according to an earlier eWEEK report. Google Fit is expected to use open APIs to allow user health data to interact with popular fitness trackers and health-related apps, according to reports. The Google I/O developer conference is arguably the most important and hotly awaited Google developer event of the spring. In 2012, Google I/O was the stuff of legend, featuring the introduction of Google Glass, with an amazing live-video stunt with parachutists from an airship wearing Google Glass headsets landing on the Moscone West rooftop and rappelling, bicycling and running into the conference to the cheers of thousands in order to give the wearable computers to Google co-founder Sergey Brin—who was already wearing one himself.
