Google IO 2018 livestream: how to watch the Google IO keynote online
Google IO 2018 livestream starts on Tuesday, May 8 in the sunny confines of Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California, right in Google's backyard.
The official Google IO 2018 keynote start time is at 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm GMT on Tuesday, which is 3am AEST on Wednesday, May 9.
Google CEO Sundar Pichai will lead the Day 1 keynote, and the event is sure to be packed with exciting announcements on everything from AI and Google Assistant to Google Home and the Google Daydream virtual reality platform.
One of the most intriguing announcements from last year's Google IO was Google Lens, an augmented reality-powered app that can do everything from identify landmarks in your photos to auto-log you into a Wi-Fi router by scanning a code.
Expect more futuristic reveals like this during the May 8 keynote.
