Google makes developers solve puzzle to discover I/O 2018 date, venue”

Android 9.0 Pineapple cake? We may also see new Chromebooks and Pixel devices. Once you get to the site, you are asked to start exploring to "Go behind the scenes with the I/O 2018 team".

There will undoubtedly be plenty of big announcements made at Google I/O 2018 this coming spring, but our first look at Google's next-generation Android software will surely be among the most exciting.

The binary message points to google.com/io, and it is there where the real fun begins, at least if you are into this sort of thing. These are clues. We saw three initially. We'll let you know when we know the time for this year's. A cryptic image attached to the tweet led people to the Google I/O website, which has been turned into an escape room-style Google Maps Street View experience set in a Google campus building. Our only clue so far is a picture of a pineapple upside-down cake, found by The Verge on Google's IO website, and we suspect that might be a red herring.

As well as information and a beta, we'd love to find out what Android P will actually be called.

At the other end of the table is a chess board game.

Unlock the door and enter "01 60 80".

There's a lot that we'd like from it, but perhaps most importantly we want it to get even better at hearing and understanding what we're saying - and being able to usefully respond to our requests. The question tells you to just type in 'Yam' and you will be moved onto the next step. Just walk up to the door and click on the lock icon.

Looking around the room, it appears that everything is upside down.

The last clues have something to do with Aeschylus (an ancient Greek tragedian).

Clue #5: The next lock asks you to provide the name Google seeks.

Turn off the lights and you'll see this.

Honestly, we couldn't figure this one without research. All we can say is "phew!".
