Google I/O being held June 25 to 26, new registration system coming

Those looking to try to nab a ticket to the 7th annual Google I/O won’t need to scramble the second registration opens this year.

Sundar Pichai, Google’s senior vice president of Chrome, Apps, and Android, just announced that Google I/O 2014 will be taking place in just 126 days from June 25 to 26 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, and this year the company is switching up its registration system.

In the past, it was a mad dash and some luck to get your registration purchase to go through, and more than likely resulted in the system saying a ticket couldn’t be found or it couldn’t complete your purchase with so many people hammering the servers.

Pichai said Google will be implementing a new system, “where you can submit your interest to attend Google I/O 2014″ then “successful applicants will then be randomly selected and notified shortly thereafter.”

More details will be available soon over at +GoogleDevelopers.

If you’re still unsuccessful in registering this year, you can still join in the fun remotely via a live stream and through I/O Extended community events around the world.

In the meantime, check out some highlights from last year and get ready for some big Android news. Maybe, in just 126, we will finally see that infamous Nexus 10 or even a Nexus 8, along with a new version of Android.
