by Reads (2,425)

Google NowThe time for summer vacations might be almost at a close, but that hasn’t stopped Google from releasing an update that turns Google Now into the ideal travel guide. The update adds a number of new travel features to the personal assistant app. These include a new card that allows the app to track car rentals and updated public transit cards which enable it to alert users when the scheduled train home is boarding.

The new update also places an added focus on entertainment with new cards offering information on concert tickets and the latest NCAA football scores. Also, Google Now’s TV card has been updated to ensure that it accurately identifies music and program information in real time.  

Perhaps best of all, Google has included a new “remind me” feature, which will allow users to prompt Google Now to remind them when Bands, Television Shows or Authors that they have previously searched release new content. Users looking to try out the updated Google Now can find the update on the Google Playstore.
