Google fully cancels I/O 2020 and postpones Cloud Next '20

Google just announced that it will not be holding an I/O event this year. 

In a series of tweet and an update on its website, Google explains that the decision was made out of concern for the health and safety of the developers, employees and local communities. It is also following the "shelter in place" requirements by the local Bay Area government. The company added that it remains committed to sharing ongoing Android updates through its developer blogs and community forums. 

It has also decided to postpone Google Cloud Next '20 to a later date when the timing is right. It is fully committed to bringing Google Cloud Next '20: Digital Connect to life. 

Prior to the full cancellation, Google was working towards delivering the I/O as an online-only event format. The Google Cloud Next '20 was originally scheduled to run from 6 April to 8 April.
