Google I/O is set to kick off at the end of this month, and now that the conference is just a few weeks away, Google has posted the full schedule so that attendees can begin planning their schedule. Interestingly, it appears that El Goog may have prematurely revealed one of its I/O announcements today, too.
In its description of an Android for Work event, Google appears to have made a mention of the next major version of Android, saying that “Android M is bringing the power of Android to all kinds of workplaces.” Google has already pulled the Android for Work event from the schedule, but the folks at Android Police were able to grab a screenshot before the listing disappeared.
Google has used I/O to preview new versions of Android several times in the past, including last year with Lollipop (then referred to as “Android L.”) That’s why it comes as no surprise that Android M will likely be talked about at I/O 2015. It’s still exciting to see mentions of Android M begin to trickle out, though, and I’m looking forward to seeing what Google crams into the next big version of Android.
One other tidbit about the Google I/O schedule that’s worth noting is that Google ATAP, the group that’s working on Project Ara, is hosting a session in which it’ll show “wearables that we hope will blow your socks off.” Exactly what ATAP has planned is still a mystery, but the group does tease “We mean this more literally than you might think…”
