Google I/O is Googles developer conference.
Although for developers they have also traditionally announced new features, updates to Android, sometimes new devices and other hardware, and new business tools and services.

I like to watch the keynote live stream on Twit (https://twit.tv/), but there are other places as well.

"Google I/O (https://gizmodo.com/what-to-expect-at-google-i-o-2018-1825734847#_ga=2.219637278.624638521.1525694451-3254418773.1522168809), the company’s annual developer conference, kicks off today with a keynote at 1pm ET/10am PT led by Google CEO Sundar Pichai, who will no doubt wax about the major projects Google’s been working on since its last conference. Are you ready for extremely nerdy details about Android P? It’s a bit too late to hop on a plane and grab a seat at the event, but fortunately, you can enjoy it from the comfort of your chair."

Anyone else get excited about these things, or is it just me?

Just watched.

One of the more exiting things was the demo of Google Assistant placing a call and making an appointment for you.
If it can do the reverse and field calls I can see all kind of business applications for this. Not just brick and mortar, but anyone who fields a lot of calls or books appointments.
Hair salons, restaurants, car services, hotels...I mean the sky is the limit.
