As this is being posted, the last sessions are ending here at Google I/O 2012 in San Francisco. This year's event was our biggest and most amazing yet, with software and hardware launches, dozens of technical sessions and code labs, and an already legendary demo that required permission from the Federal Aviation Administration. We shared all this with more than 5500 developer attendees in person, and with millions more in 172 countries around the world via I/O Live and I/O Extended.
- 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.
- Google Docs adds offline support, and a Google Drive app for iOS.
- Google Compute Engine launches into limited preview.
For all the details, you can watch full session videos, which we continue to upload as they’re ready.
Thanks for coming, thanks for watching, and most of all, thank you for being Google developers!
