March 17, 2020 Google announced that an online event called "Google Cloud Next '20: Digital Connect", which the company planned to hold for free in a virtual format for all users in the world from April 6 to 8, 2020, is postponed indefinitely due to coronavirus. Google has officially announced this delay on the Google Cloud Developer Portal.

Thus, Google’s plans to host the Cloud Next '20 conference are changing for the second time this month. Now this applies to all online presentations and breakout sessions, as well as the ability to remotely chat with company experts and speakers who were transferred to the virtual plane at the beginning of March this year specifically for the Cloud Next '20: Digital Connect online event.

Google said that it was not going to cancel this event, but only postponed it indefinitely, “taking care of the health and safety of customers, partners, employees and local communities, and based on recent decisions of federal and local authorities regarding coronavirus (COVID-19) ". Google has promised to announce the new time for Cloud Next '20: Digital Connect, when "there will be a clearer understanding of the further development of the current situation."

Google I / O event organizers are currently workingover an alternative conference format to provide the best possible connection with the developer community, possibly in virtual mode. At the annual Google I / O conference on May 12-14, 2020 in Mountain View, California, USA, a full-fledged presentation of Android 11 was to be shown.

Currently, Google employs about 120 thousand people, and the company has about 100 thousand employees. In addition, Google said it had created a special money fund (COVID-19 fund), from which funds are supposed to be paid sick leave for all temporary staff and suppliers of the company if they have symptoms of the virus or cannot come to work due to quarantine. Thus, Google will provide all its non-staff employees with paid sick leave, if it is detected.
