Google I/O set for June 25, attendees will be selected via lottery


Google has announced the dates for its annual I/O conference. This year, the developer conference will be held from June 25-26 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Interested attendees will be pleased to know that the process of getting tickets will be a little different this year.

In previous years, tickets would be sold on a “first come, first serve” basis. With the large amount of people trying to get tickets as soon as possible, it was basically a scramble to order them as soon as humanly possible. This year, all interested parties will need to do is submit their interest and Google will randomly select who gets to go. It might not drastically increase everyone’s chances of going, but it should remove some of the stress of needing to be first.

Either way, if you can’t make it to the event, Google will be again livestreaming all the keynotes and developer sessions. Now that we have a date, all we need to do is count the days until Google’s next big event to announce what’s next for all their products and services. More Google Play Edition phones, please?

Here are some highlights from last year’s I/O:
