Google launches Android and the web apps for Interactive Events

Search giant Google has launched Interactive Events, a  second-screen tool meant to be used at the company’s own events. You can download the new app now directly from Google Play and also access it on the web at

Many people are speculating about the purpose of this app, pointing out that Google I/O 2015 is only two months away. Google launches a new standalone app every year for its developer conference, and the thinking was that this app would replace those annual releases.

The app will naturally only work at events that are organized by Google.


Interestingly, this description refers to the app as the “Google Events App” even though it’s clearly called “Interactive Events.” Given that an iOS version isn’t yet available, we’d wager this may be the explanation for the discrepancy — the Google name is much more needed on Apple’s App Store than on Google Play.

When you first access the app on Android or the web, you’re still greeted with the following disclaimer:

Welcome to the Interactive Events app!
