An update for Google Now has just come through the Google Search app for devices running Android 4.1 which includes new cards such as Public Alerts to allow you to receive emergency messages such as storm warnings and earthquake alerts and also a Movies card which gives you information on session times and will appear when you are near a movie theater, or on the days you’re most likely to search for movies like maybe the weekend. The update also includes added functionality for the Favourite Sports team card, such as the ability to set which sports team you follow instead of basing it off your search history you can now specify your American sports team from the NFL, NBA, NHL or Baseball into your Google Now card, it still gives no option to choose an Australian sports team but you can now add your favourite European Soccer teams.
The update also includes support for South Korea. Great to see that Google is continuing to work on Google Now as I can see a number of options which would be worthwhile adding in, but I really am desperate to get the Australian Sports team scores into there. Can’t wait to see what other cards they are going to add in the future.
