Earlier this month, Google cancelled the ‘physical’ I/O 2020 event over coronavirus concerns, leading to speculations that the event might be an online-only affair this year. However, the search giant has now cancelled the event in its entirety. In simple words, no I/O event this year.

“A #GoogleIO update: Out of concern for the health and safety of our developers, employees, and local communities — and in line with “shelter in place” requirements by the local Bay Area government — we sadly will not be holding an I/O event in any capacity this year”, the official Google Developers handle tweeted.

The event’s cancellation casts doubt over Google’s plans regarding Android 11’s development and Pixel 4a’s launch. However, the company says that it is committed to sharing ongoing Android updates through its community forum and developers blog.

I’ve been writing about consumer technology for over three years now, having worked with names such as NDTV and Beebom in the past. Aside from covering the latest news, I’ve reviewed my fair share of devices ranging from smartphones and laptops to smart home devices. I also have interviewed tech execs and appeared as a host in YouTube videos talking about the latest and greatest gadgets out there.
