Last week, thousands of you joined us at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA, and millions more watched remotely for Google I/O. Together with you, we transformed Shoreline into a festival of hands-on learning with over 200+ technical talks, dozens of interactive demos and an After Hours party with art cars and a karaoke rickshaw.

Thanks so much for making it a special moment for all of us! #io16

The I/O Requests program was a success once again! This year, we received and answered 70 requests from all over the world. We had a lot of fun tracking down answers for you across Shoreline (and we got a tan and burned some calories while we were at it)!

Here are some of our favorite requests from the 3-day #io16 festival:
1. +Dan Scott was curious about some floating pieces of paper he noticed in the Shoreline Amphitheatre the morning of day 2. It turns out it was left over confetti from the Wednesday night concert, and we recreated the experience for him: goo.gl/KOMcRV.
2. When +Paolo Amoroso watched the keynote he was curious which movie was featured during the introduction of Daydream. The answer is the IMAX film “A Beautiful Planet”: goo.gl/JHXON2.
3. It seems like the chicken dance is becoming an annual request from members of Google’s +Google Top Contributor Program: goo.gl/34ulyf.

You can see all the requests we fulfilled in the I/O ’16 Request Google+ Collection: goo.gl/xZiO9Z. Thanks to everyone who participated!

Until next year,
Your I/O Requests Team

A study on scale: WhatsApp & Google Drive… the story of our integration

WhatsApp is one of the most popular mobile apps in the world, with over a billion users sending and receiving over 42 billion messages, photos, and videos every day. But what would happen if people lost or upgraded their phones? All these messages and memories would be gone. So we worked with WhatsApp to give their users the ability to back up their data to Google Drive and restore it when they setup WhatsApp on a new phone.

One of the challenges of this integration is scaling for so many users. How did we do it and not fall over? How did we make the integration as simple as WhatsApp itself? Check out our blogpost for some insight on the technical challenges and things we did to make it happen: http://goo.gl/pPIvkg

This year, we took a fresh take on the I/O After Hours party: day 2 of #io16 is extending into the night with evening sessions, music, food, interactive installations, and fun surprises! It’s all happening in the same space as day activities but with a bright new look.
