Leave it to Google to tease us with a puzzle instead of just comes out and tells us when Google I/O 2023 will take place. If you’re curious about joining the group of developers who decide when to book flights to the company’s next developer conference, head here.

Every year, Google leaves it up to the developers to uncover the date for it next developer conference. Last year it was a virtual string you had to figure out. This year it is a collaborative effort that requires “a pattern of inputs” to “inform the collective output.” Google, I have a deadline! Drop it Glass onion puzzle and just tell us the date!

You can participate in the decoding by pressing “start” on the main page, or become a spectator by selecting “observe”. 9to5Google has a walkthroughgh of how to play the game if you want to try it, but right now it looks like progress is moving along at a decent pace.

I plan to attend the developer conference this year when we get details on how to go about it. It will probably be in the spring, around May, as Google usually does planning these conferences around my birthday. How thoughtful.

It’s unclear if it’s in person this year or virtual. Google may even choose to create a hybrid model. I have contacted Google to ask for the exact dates of this developer conference for my planning. Enjoy playing your game, suckers.

The next version of Android 14 Developer Preview is already out for participating units. The features announced with each update will likely drive the theme of this year’s Google I/O. Some announced new features include better support for tablets and foldables – where’s that Pixel tablet, Moreover? The first Android 14 public beta should hit in April, just in time for Google I/O 2023.
