The Best Thing About Android Just Got Even Better

But if theres one thing that is perhaps most impressive and most useful about Googles mobile operating system, its arguably Google Now and it just got a whole lot better. Google announced on its Google+ page on Wednesday evening that it has enhanced the service with the addition of three new card types:news topics, website updates and what to watch. If youre a fan of a particular blog, the Website update card can bring you things like the latest post so youll never miss a story, and the News topic card brings you fresh articles from the web on topics you care about, Googles Android team wrote. The What to watch card gives you Movie and TV recommendations when youre staying in. The post continued, There are a few other great additions in Google Now with todays update: you can see traffic incidents on your commute using real-time data from Waze, set repeat reminders, get real time scores for rugby teams, and also see when your packages are ready for in-store pickup. Google Now, for those unaware, is an intelligent personal assistant solution that provides users with information they need before they even think to ask for it. For instance, if there is a shipping confirmation in your Gmail account with a tracking number, Google Now will show you a card with delivery information. If there is an appointment in your calendar across town, Google Now will alert you when you need to leave, taking your route and traffic into account.
