This year due to COVID-19, Apple held its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) digitally & Google held the "Hey Google" smart home virtual summit.
Both the events happened digitally and without a live audience. The events were brief and not like usual multi-day events of the past. The Apple event lasted only for one hour and fifty-five minutes. While the events were short, the announcements were big and the smart home found good screentime.
