Google I/O 2017 VR keynote live blog


We’re here at day two of Google I/O 2017, and the show starts with a keynote specific to Google’s work in VR, led by its head of virtual reality and augmented reality, Clay Bavor. The keynote gets started at 9:30 AM PT (12:30 PM PT) so tune in below to follow along.

We expect Google to talk in much more detail about its work on standalone VR headsets, which it announced on day one of I/O, and also about some of its content initiatives — along with hopefully some surprises, too.

No Google Glass anywhere, but I see an Engadget blogger wearing Spectacles.

No bubble game today, just these line things.

Once again, it’s cold in the Shoreline Amphitheater. But this time we came prepared with plenty of hot coffee.

We’re in and seated, the keynote starts in about 20 minutes and they’re wrapping one of the developer sessions in the Amphitheater right now.
