Google IO 2022: How to watch the live stream
In just a few hours, Google IO 2022 will kick off, as the company’s software-focused trade show runs May 11-12, but it’s the first day — and Google’s keynote in particular — where the most announcements are likely to occur.
This keynote is scheduled for 1pm ET / 10am PT / 6pm BST, or 3am AEST on May 12 for those in Australia, and we’ve already started our Google IO live blog, ready for any announcements that should kick off.
We expect to hear all about Android 13 and Wear OS updates. Chances are we’ll also see the Google Pixel 6a, and maybe even the Pixel Watch.
The good news is that you don’t have to go to the Shoreline Amphitheater in California to watch the keynote, because while that’s where it’s held, Google – like any good tech company – is also streaming it, so the whole world can watch.
We’ll also cover the announcements in full here on TechRadar, so you won’t miss a thing if you don’t tune in, but if you do want to watch, we explain how below.
How to watch the Google IO 2022 keynote live
Google will broadcast its IO 2022 keynote on YouTube, so you can watch it live and in full by clicking here.
We’ll also be live blogging before and during the keynote, so you can follow that during the launch as well.
After the keynote, there is a developer-focused keynote, which you can look here. And if you want to watch any of the sessions happening during the rest of Google IO 2022, you can head over to the official site you’ll need to sign up for most of them to do this, but it’s free and open to everyone.
