Where to Watch Google I/O 2011 Online


This year’s Google I/O sold out in just 59 minutes, meaning only the most rabid of developers will be in attendance at the annual conference. But for those who weren’t able to get a ticket, there’s still plenty of opportunity to catch all the action — including all of the keynotes and a number of conference sessions, which will be live streamed from 9:00 am PST to 6:00 p.m. PST on both days of the conference.

Beginning Tuesday, Google (s GOOG) will live stream the event at www.google.com/io. The live coverage will include keynotes and live video feeds from its two largest session rooms throughout the two-day conference, featuring sessions from the Android and Chrome tracks throughout the conference. Google will also be recording sessions that were not live streamed, which it plans to have available within 24 hours of the recordings.

And here’s an embedded copy of the live stream:

Google will also be unveiling a new feature for this year’s I/O live stream: live captions. For the first time, it will add captioning to the video feed to make sure all the news and content is available to viewers that are hearing impaired. To add even more accessibility, those captions will be machine-translated into all available languages supported by Google Translate.

For those who can’t make it to the show but also don’t want to be tied to their desks throughout the conference, Google will also have Google I/O Extended viewing parties available around the world. For those who would like to virtually attend, hit up this list of viewing parties available in as far-off locations as Taipei, Istanbul and Buenos Aires.

Of course, GigaOM will also be providing live coverage of the event, including keynotes and key pieces of news that will be announced throughout the conference. Check back frequently for reports and analysis of Google’s big announcements during the conference.
