It’s for the developers, but we all know it’s really for Pixel fans

Okay, so it’s 2022. You’ve had your good but boring $449 Pixel 5A for nearly nine months, been patiently testing the Android 13 beta for two weeks, and lamenting about how you can’t connect the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 to it using the Android Wear OS app because that’s how things are. Enter Google I/O, the conference you hope will fix all of that, maybe spill the beans on a rumored new watch from Google, and, most importantly, finish whatever new thing it starts. And maybe you wouldn’t mind tossing that Pixel 5A for a fresh Pixel 6A announcement rumored to happen.

Want to know if these rumored devices actually get announced? You’re in the right place — scroll down for all the latest news, announcements, and Android 13 changes coming straight out of Google I/O, the company’s yearly developer conference going on from May 11th through May 12th.
