Google正式取消了原定于5月12日至5月14日在加利福尼亚山景城的海岸线露天剧场举行的I / O主题演讲。这是由于最近爆发的COVID-19疫情也席卷了整个美国。这是Google首次跳过I / O的情况。甚至游戏开发者大会也已推迟到今年晚些时候。Google通过发给参与者的电子邮件表示，它将取消涉及实际存在的I / O事件，并将通过开发人员社区提出一种新方法。他们还补充说，此I / O的退款将在3月13日之前提供。
Google officially cancelled the I / O keynote speech originally scheduled for May 12 to May 14 at the Coastline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California. This is because the recent outbreak of COVID-19 has also swept across the United States. This is the first time Google has skipped I / O. Even the Game Developers Conference has been postponed until later this year. Google stated in an email to participants that it would cancel an I / O event involving an actual existence and would propose a new approach through the developer community. They also added that refunds for this I / O will be provided by March 13.
Google在发布有关I / O的消息时说，“由于对冠状病毒（COVID-19）的担忧，并且根据CDC，WHO和其他卫生当局的健康指导，我们决定取消实际的Google I / O在海岸线露天剧场举行的活动。”继上周Facebook采取行动后，谷歌现在已成为第二家退出或取消开发者活动的大型科技公司。这两家公司通常会吸引很多参与者参加各自的活动。苹果也尚未宣布WWDC 2020的日期，但预计将于6月8日至6月12日举行。
Google said in a news release about I / O, "Due to concerns about coronavirus (COVID-19) and in accordance with health guidance from the CDC, WHO and other health authorities, we have decided to cancel the actual Google I / O on the shoreline Theater event. "Following Facebook's action last week, Google is now the second major tech company to withdraw or cancel developer activity. The two companies usually attract many participants to their respective events. Apple has not announced the date of WWDC 2020, but it is expected to be held from June 8 to June 12.
Due to a coronavirus problem, Apple can still decide to postpone this year's WWDC, although if Apple also cancels its partnership with Google and Facebook at the same time, the results may not be good. The coronavirus has been forced to cancel, with many notable events including the Mobile World Congress and the Game Developers Conference.
This year, a significant amount of technical activity has been converted to real-time streaming. If Apple cannot hold an event in San Jose as usual, it must also be used as an option for WWDC events. To date, more than 90,000 citizens have been diagnosed with COVID-19, which has caused more than 3,000 deaths, most of them in China. COVID-19 is gradually spreading throughout the United States, and cases have been confirmed near San Francisco.
