A Google placemarker stands outside Moscone West in San Francisco, where this week developers are converging to learn the latest coming from inside the Googleplex. Engineers and developers from Google are leading sessions, giving talks, and hacking the Web to see what they can build alongside developers using the latest innovations of Google growing family of projects.
It's clear from the array of projects Google has going on that it intends for Android to be everywhere. Leading developers on their path toward more open innovation, Google is making it possible for developers to put Android anywhere. From TVs to music and even home appliances and lighting, from the looks of Google I/O, the Android family is growing.
There's always lots of freebies at Google, and the treats at I/O are no exception. Shortly after registering on Monday, an I/O attendee hold up this years shirt, just the first of many gifts to the Android developers.
With its 'Google@Home' initiative, we saw how Google intends to empower developers to create a connected home, where Android can do everything from play music from the cloud over the stereo, and control the temperature in the house, to adjust lighting, monitor the laundry, and wake you up in the morning.
One of the bigger announcements on Tuesday was the launch of Google Music Beta, which will allow users to store their music libraries in Google's cloud and access their content from any Android device.
