Google I/O Puzzle Cracked, Event Details Revealed

With this, the search engine giant has now confirmed that its next developer conference - Google I/O 2020, will kick-off on 12th May.

Another year, another Google I/O. This marks the fifth year that the company is hosting its annual developer conference at the Shoreline Amphitheater. Last year's puzzle was cracked in no time, thanks to the clever developer of Lawnchair Launcher Till Kottmann. In the past these puzzles have been individual in nature.

The intergalactic satellite network powering this signal board is down.

Each time the puzzle is solved the "signal strength" increases and once it reaches 100% the "special message" (which we assume will be the dates and location of I/O) will be revealed.

With consumers also becoming increasingly concerned with what big tech companies are doing with all that personal data we keep handing over, you can also expect Pichai and other Google executives to talk about privacy and security on stage during the May 12 opening keynote.

Those who chose to accept the mission were presented with six constellation satellites they needed to figure out details of and assign frequencies to. Determine its proper name, then restore its satellites to their original frequencies. Once all clusters are fully operational, the entire Grid will shine brightly and the connectivity of the cosmos restored.

The teaser is a "mission" that takes you into a partially command-driven game that sounds like we all have to work together to progress.

Following the puzzle's completion, Sundar Pichai, the CEO of both Google and Alphabet, shared a tweet confirming the dates and adding that the event will take place at the Shoreline Amphitheatre, which is in Mountain View near Google's headquarters. It will run from May 12 - 14 USA time.
