Google held a gathering in San Francisco called Google I/O 2012 last Wednesday, June 27-Friday June 29th, where developers stopped being “on the other side of the screen” and got the chance to get on stage. During three intense days with the conference transmitted live over the internet for all of the world to view, we were able to be witnesses to the latest in mobile and online technology, product launches (including the first Google tablet!), and much more directly from the mouth of their creators. If you missed it in the following blog we present the highlights of the event whose impact will continue to be felt all year.
Some of the highlights of the event of the most important points covered, according to the blog Google Developers:
- Nexus 7, the first tablet from Google, and Nexus Q, the first social streaming media player.
- Android 4.1, Jelly Bean, with buttery smooth graphics and great new features.
- Google Now, a new search experience on Android that brings you the information you need.
- Google+ Events, and Google+ tablet apps for Android and iOS.
- Project Glass, demoed live during a skydive over San Francisco.
- Chrome for Android moves to Stable, and Chrome for iOS is now available.
