Google cares about apps for the big screen again but still needs to convince developers

For most of us, Google I / O 2022 was all about the product announcements. We’re consumers and we like to spend our money on tech gadgets like phones, tablets, and smartwatches. But Google I / O is, and always has been, a developer conference.

Google takes its time in the spotlight to show off consumer-facing things to keep us interested, but the majority of time is spent showing off the improvements and new tools that developers use to build Android apps. Apps are what make a software platform like Android viable, after all. Rest in peace, Windows Phone, BlackBerry, WebOS, and all the rest.
