Google I/O App For Android Gets Updated For 2013


We’re now just six days away from Google I/O, and in preparation for the event, Google has updated its official Google I/O app for Android. Aimed at both those attending the conference and those keeping up from home, the app now offers maps with session information, HDMI video output for live streams, Google+ login support, and more.
