One of the things covered in yesterdays Google IO Keynote was the introduction of Google Now. Now I’m still not 100% sure on what exactly Google Now is, but I do know that so far I like it. Google has also launched a landing page for Google Now which contains a lot of information on it and also an introductory video to try and convey more on what exactly it is and also what it can do for you. There is also a good write up on Google Now in the Nexus 7 book available from Google Books in the Play Store.
After loading the Jelly Bean ROM on my Galaxy Nexus last night I have had only a little time to play with Google Now but so far it displays a nice card with my calendar, weather and at the moment traffic information in regards to my route from work to home. I’m still waiting for the card with the results of the latest Penrith Panthers game to pop up but that may not occur till after this weekend. All in all I like what Google has done with this and can’t wait to see what other cards appear.
