Google has announced plans to live-stream its Google I/O conference next month, after interest in the developer event saw tickets sell out in just 59 minutes. As of May 10, Google will be offering all-day streaming from the two biggest session rooms, covering keynotes and Android/Chrome developer sessions, at Google I/O Live.
Meanwhile, those sessions which aren’t streamed live will be recorded in HD, and Google says it will try to get the footage online for remote/repeat viewing within 24hrs of them taking place. There’ll be captioning support on all footage, live and recorded, and machine-translated international captions as well.
Google I/O 2011 runs from May 10 to May 11, and SlashGear will be on-site to bring back all the news from the opening keynote. We’re expecting Google to announce the combination of the Gingerbread, Honeycomb and Google TV platforms into a single Android AOSP, as well as the “Google Me” social network to make its debut.
