Google is minutes away from revealing what it’s been quietly working on.

CEO Sundar Pichai is expected to take the stage on Tuesday at 1 p.m. ET to kick off Google IO, the company’s annual developer conference.

Google is expected to show off the latest on its AI models — with the company teasing some sort of virtual assistant on social media — along with updates to its search product and Android 15, the newest version of its popular mobile operating system.

One more day until #GoogleIO! We’re feeling 🤩. See you tomorrow for the latest news about AI, Search and more.

The keynote will be a chance for Google to respond after its rival, OpenAI, seemingly tried to upstage the company with an event of its own the day before, where it showed off a new flagship model, GPT-4o, and the improvements it brings to ChatGPT.

We might also get an update on Google’s Gemini AI image generator after a debacle in which it spat out inaccurate images of historical people when prompted. Google’s CEO said the company “got it wrong,” and Google turned off Gemini’s ability to generate images of people after the backlash while it worked to fix the issue.

Business Insider will be in attendance at Google IO and covering the biggest announcements when the event kicks off — keep scrolling for the latest.

For those who want to watch the keynote, there’s also a livestream.

The keynote is expected to last around 2 hours, but we’ll keep track of the big news in our live blog so you don’t have to.

Google says the music in the background as we wait for things to kick off is generated by its AI models.
