Live: Google I/O 2014 Keynote!

The day has arrived! Google I/O 2014 officially kicks off today with the conference’s 2-hour keynote before heading into all sorts of developer sessions. As is always the case at I/O, we are live blogging the keynote from inside San Francisco’s Moscone Center to add our own commentary to the announcements as they break.

It’s going to be a fun couple of hours, with a new version of Android expected to be previewed, along with Android Wear, TV talk, and more. I get the feeling that Google is going to overwhelm us with awesomeness, if that is even possible. 

The keynote kicks off at 9:00AM Pacific (12:00PM Eastern).

Keep in mind that Google will livestream everything as well, so you can watch along with us. Once we have a video to embed, we will do that below, just above the live blog widget.


  • Brien Gerber

    Anyone hear whether or not some of the features that are coming to chromebooks, such as receiving/sending texts/seeing calls, are coming Chrome for Mac/Windows?

  • XvierX

    Yeaaaah, i’m gonna need the free swag that the protestors aren’t gonna use. Thaannnnks.

    • True Radiant Free


  • MacNificent

    4.4.4 just downloaded on my 2013 WiFi Nexus 7

  • aBabyPenguin

    Look who I found! XD

  • KingKondiment

    So given the multiple references to the Nexus line throughout the I/O…chances it will live on?

  • eazy

    Did anyone catch the jab at Apple? Hilarious

    • NexusMan

      loved it. About time.

  • Guest

    Kellen: “FML …I think he just said the MOTO 360 won’t be here until end of summer.”

    • True Radiant Free

      Thanks for putting Kellen’s face three times in the same pic, that just made it that more awesome.

    • LOL

      Think he is just so happy to get away from the new born and have some time for himself for a few days.

  • I for one, CANNOT WAIT to have the “L” preview on my Nexus 5 tomorrow.


    • hoosiercub88

      I’ll probably be giving it a shot on my Nexus 7 as well. 🙂 Can’t wait.

  • Guest

    Hello Kellen.. Time, nice to see you!

  • droidrazredge

    Tim and Kellen get a Moto 360 ( when available), LG G Watch, and a Carboard in the shape of a tablet!! Sweeet Google Swag.

  • rslh

    No mention of any upcoming Nexus product?! waaah

    • hkklife

      Another I/O that falls short of the previous year(s). I think they peaked in, what, 2011?

  • MacNificent

    Google girls are hot!

  • True Radiant Free


    • This chick was so f*cking weird. Any time she got on camera she was derping all over the place.

      • droidrazredge

        Are you referring to Ellie Powers who talked about Google Play ?

        • Seriously? No. The freakbag in the pic above.

          • droidrazredge

            oh, sorry, the picture did not not show up for me for some reason that’s why I was confused. I had to re-open the article to finally get the picture to show.

          • True Radiant Free

            I had to reload the article too to get my own picture to load XD

  • JSo

    What’s with all the protestors?

  • MacNificent

    What is that guy yelling about? I want the inside stuff..

  • Aooga

    There’s some guy screaming robots kill people.

  • breadable

    Hey, I just saw Tim and Kellen in the crowd!

  • Guest

    This is the biggest overhaul Android has had in quite some time (Looks wise – Since 4.1. Performance wise – since 4.2). I can’t wait to see what Android L is all about! This has been a great Google I/O so far.

    • JSo

      Luckily I have a Nexus 5 so I can try it out tomorrow hopefully. I can’t wait.

  • MacNificent

    Kellen and Tim live at I/O. You guys look great!

  • droidrazredge

    So I did not get a clear understanding of this and I was wondering is AndroidAuto available on current car partners through “L” update with your phone hooked up to the car or is it only available through new cars where these same partners integrate it into the car ?

    • Aooga

      Only new cars.

      • Paul Hansen

        I hope they add it to aftermarket head units as well.

        • I see this happening.

        • droidrazredge

          I’m hoping this as well or they’re going to be alienating a lot of people, like myself, whom just got new 2014 vehicles.

  • NexusMan

    BOOOOO! Samsung before Moto!!!!

  • ckeegan

    “later this summer” Stupid Moto.

  • BeerManMike


    • Carlos Lopez

      A lot of people boo’d haha

      • JSo

        No one cares about the LG or Samsung watch. Everyone wants the Moto 360. lol

  • droidrazredge

    Does anyone else’s messages keep getting moderated and not show up in the S live comment section ?

  • DC_Guy

    Did anyone else’s live stream just randomly jump back and repeat that last 20 minutes of the presentation?

    • jimt

      yes, mine.

  • Jason Kahn

    Did android just grow up?

  • JSo

    System images available tomorrow for developers. 🙂

  • BeerManMike

    Is there some lady yelling in the background wtf?

  • NexusMan

    Fun indeed. Can’t wait to hear all the news as it breaks.

  • JSo

    I saw a new keyboard

  • JSo

    I want this preview on my Nexus 5

  • Godzilla

    That dude has epic fail hair

  • Godzilla

    KITT spotted!!

  • tylerc23

    Am I the only one that doesn’t like the new Key Designs?

  • enigmaco

    That moto 360 is looking pretty sweet.

  • steve

    reminds me of the Zune GUI..in a good way!

  • JSo

    Seems like Android is getting more animated. That’s cool

  • Godzilla

    What the hell is up with those ugly on screen buttons?

    • True Radiant Free

      Sadly, there’s still two bars on 10″ tablets, the on screen buttons and notification bar 🙁

  • JSo

    Here it comes…

  • Guang Hao

    is he wearing the moto 360?

    • droidrazredge

      Yes, that is the Moto 360.

  • JSo

    Statistics, statistics, statistics…

  • True Radiant Free

    What was that interesting looking home screen that flashed on screen for a second in that intro?

    • BringerOfTruth

      The Android 4.5 Lollipop Redesigned Lockscreen 😛

      • True Radiant Free

        It’ll definitely be 5.0

  • Godzilla

    Show the Nexus 9!!!!

  • droidrazredge

    Sundar clearly likes the Moto 360 better than the LG G Watch. The wrist don’t lie.

    • bkosh84

      Doesn’t mean another speaker won’t wear the LG G Watch…. Him wearing the Moto 360 doesn’t mean anything, lol.

      • droidrazredge

        Matias Duarte sporting the LG G Watch

  • NFL Network and Google I/O, today was a good day… (Ice Cube voice)

  • Godzilla

    360 looks perfectly sized!!!!

    • droidrazredge

      see and you had your doubts Godzilla =p.

      • Godzilla

        my doubts were about prize, not size

        • Godzilla


          • droidrazredge

            oh, sorry, I thought you had meant size.

  • bkosh84

    I love how deliberate Sundar is on showing off the Moto 360. lol

  • Furnaceboy

    Moto 360 in clear view on sundars wrist…

  • JSo

    I could have sworn I just saw a new lockscreen screen shot in the opening.

    • RobJBR

      They did show it by accident!

  • Godzilla


    • DanSan

      yea i have no sound either.

  • tylerc23

    Anyone else hearing that Jeopardy theme in their head?

  • JSo

    No sound on YouTube. 🙁

  • today googleeeeeeee

  • droidrazredge

    I’m going to take a famous line from SpongeBob and say:’m Ready!!! I’m Ready!!! I’m Ready!!! I’m Ready!!! I’m Ready!!! I’m Ready!!! I’m Ready!!! I’m Ready!!!

  • Jon Redeker

    Anyone else here in the Grand Rapids extended I/O?

  • Albert Kilger

    Is everyone else’s body ready?

  • JSo

    The show is about to start. No work is getting done for the next couple hours. lol

  • On2Vegas

    Interesting. Hugo Barra is there.

  • Rick O’Shea

    Another Google I/O streaming site: https://www.google.com/events/io

    • robager

      As opposed to what other stream of the event?

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      I mean it’s all the same Youtube stream

  • Godzilla

    I cant decide if I want to watch pornhub or Google I/O. I needs multi windown on chrome!!

    • JSo

      Menu > New Window?

      • Godzilla

        Yes, yes i know, trust me I have that down pat.

    • Daeshaun Griffiths

      You should head to cnn and watch the kim jong video because i gave me a good laugh. And it’s the only way i can think of to kill time.

      • Godzilla

        I think i gonna bypass Japan next time and take out North Korea.

  • David Parrella

    I’m just here for my freakin…

    • Godzilla

      Ha, this

    • 213ninja

      that’s hilarious

    • BigTimmay

      Hope you got the memo just a min ago..


  • JSo

    I’m kind of sad that Google TV may just kick Chromecast to the curb.

    • Daeshaun Griffiths

      it’s been 11 months of chromecast i believe. It got my feet wet but i’m ready to dive in.

    • Godzilla

      chromecast will never be kicked to the curb, they sold wayyyyy too many

      • JSo

        I hope so. It just seems like they havent been trying to expand it with more features or anything. Unless it just can’t handle much. Then I guess I could understand that.

        • Godzilla

          it seems like every month someone is adding support though. ESPN for example. I dont see ESPN adding support unless they believe it’ll be around.

          • JSo

            Thats other apps adding support. I’m thinking more like notifications on the screen. Like Google now cards or something when you arent watching anything and the screen is just going through wallpapers. That would be Googles job I would think.

          • Godzilla

            Ah, well that is true

          • JSo

            Well it seems like we are in fact getting a lot of new Chromecast features. 🙂

          • Paul Hansen

            I don’t think it really has the horsepower for much more.

          • JSo

            Maybe this new TV thing is the Chromecast 2 then. 🙂

          • miri

            Chromecast = minimalist, low cost streaming device, AndroidTV = more expensive, full set top box.

          • JSo

            Stop raining on my parade. lol. It is always possible for them to drop the Google TV name and stick with Chromecast. I’m just throwing out speculations because I need to waste time before the show.

        • miri

          It already does exactly what it’s intended to do.

    • j

      You will be able to plug chromecast into a Google TV box and create a sentient streaming robot.

  • nabooska

    I’m hard

  • Apostrafee

    Thankfully I don’t need Safari to watch it.

  • Daeshaun Griffiths

    The combination of Google i/o and todays one piece chapter has me in a very good spirit. I’m all smiles.

  • khentouchthis

    I wonder if there’s any progress regarding Android ART…

    • timtom

      On Google’s side, it has already replaced Dalvik in the next update. On 3rd party app side, who knows…

  • Vijay Nlsn Raj
    • JSo

      Why would Motorola launch their next phone at Google I/O? I don’t believe that rumor.

    • Robert Macri

      That may be the worst source ever.

      • hkklife

        No, IBTimes is the worst source ever but this one is a close 2nd.

        • Godzilla

          if Bionic didnt report it, it isnt true.

    • Godzilla

      highly unlikely my friend

  • Im there and its going to be a blast. Lucky MEeeeeee

  • Paul Hansen

    Kellen, you’re being awful hush on the X+1 with all the leaks happening elsewhere the past week… You have some ‘splaining to do.

    • Godzilla

      They are not really leaks. It was in a case, still no solid word on specs or anything worth talking about on droid life

      • Paul Hansen

        Doesn’t matter if it’s reliable or not. How many “is this the new XYZ” threads have there been for every other device. They’re being more hush than usual.

        • Godzilla

          probabliy because 80 percent of that stuff was BS in the end. They are constantly learning and trying to make their site better. Why post an article that says “Moto X+1 to feature a fellatio port” if it is more than likely a BS rumor?

      • NorCalGuy

        There was a picture that’s plenty to talk about around here

      • K

        Does Sarge have any new details to share with us?

        • Bryan Mills

          It will have specs from 2013 pretty much

        • TrollSuck

          Sarge was just a figment of some one’s schizophrenic imagination

  • JSo

    People better not start posting “My body is ready” or “it’s happening” memes. lol

  • Brent Cooper

    I cant wait! So excited 🙂

  • I really wish I didn’t have a conference at work today at 11 am central (9 am PST). Probably will just have to sneak peaks at the DL blog to stay updated 🙂

    • Pretty excited about being able to Chromecast it this year…

      • DR

        How do you chromecast it?

        • JSo

          Well it’s on YouTube so I would think it would be like any other YouTube video. But I havent watched a live event on my Chromecast before.

          • This is correct. It was added in the last update to YouTube.

        • Just go to the YouTube link and cast it like any other video. It was added in the last update!

  • Excited! Can’t wait!

  • T4rd

    Can’t wait to see what’s going to be in iOS 8 and 9!

  • evilfatcow

    Isn’t it noon EST? AndroidAuthority has it listened as 12 ET.

    • evilfatcow

      nvm. i read shanes comment down there “it’s 10 AM on the east coast…” thinking he meant it kicks off at 10, but was referring to how early Kellen posted this.

  • Who’s excited for the keynote? Chrome integration with Android is what I’m hoping for

  • IT’S [almost] HAPPENING

  • Shane Redman

    It’s 10AM on the east coast….Look at Kellen pumping out reads before 7am. He’s pumped

  • Anyone got a YouTube link or is it not up yet?

  • Matthew DiGiacomo

    Somebody is up early today! :p
