Google I\/O, the company's annual developer-focused conference, kicks off in just a few hours -- but at a much different venue than in years past. Instead of San Francisco's Moscone Center, we're literally in Google's backyard at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View. The location may be different, but CEO Sundar Pichai and a parade of Google executives will still be taking the stage to tell us all about the next version of Android, updates to Chrome, and a host of things yet to be formally announced. We should hear about the company's expanded VR ambitions, a new competitor to Amazon's Alexa, more details on Android Wear and much more.\n\nThe keynote starts at 1PM ET \/ 10AM PT, and we'll be liveblogging all the news right here. Google wouldn't shuttle us all down to Mountain View if it didn't have something big planned, so stay tuned.
