Google Will Broadcast I/O Keynote Live on YouTube in 360-Degrees

Google I/O 2015 Cardboard

We’re just under a day away until Google’s annual I/O event kicks off and we can expect virtual reality to be a hot topic during the developers conference.

Even if you’re not one of the lucky few to be in attendance, Google will of course broadcast the keynote live on YouTube so you don’t miss out. And with YouTube just having updated their iOS app to fully support Google Cardboard VR viewing of videos, you will also be able to watch the live stream in 360-degrees.

If you want an even more immersive viewing experience of the I/O keynote, you can drop your phone into a Google Cardboard headset to get that full virtual reality experience, like you are actually sitting in the front row.

The Google I/O keynote starts at 10 AM PT on May 18th, where it’s rumored that Google will be unveiling their latest plans for a self-contained VR headset and more details around their full Google VR efforts.

At last year’s Google I/O, the first day of the conference included announcements around Google Cardboard and the Cardboard SDK, along with details about their VR Expeditions program and an introduction to Jump VR, Google’s VR camera eco-system.

Whether you watch the live broadcast in 360° or just the standard way, this is one keynote you don’t want to miss.
