The Android Google+ account has just advised that some updates are being added to Google Now, which should begin rolling out immediately – although there are no notifications for an update in Google Play as yet.
The update consists of three new cards that have been added –
- Website update card can bring you things like the latest post so you’ll never miss a story.
- News topic card brings you fresh articles from the web on topics you care about.
- What to watch card gives you Movie and TV recommendations when you’re staying in.
There are a couple of minor updates to the functionality of existing cards as well. The Commute cards should also now include the ability to see traffic incidents from Waze to warn you of interruptions to your trips.
There will also be – and this could possibly be the exciting bit – scores for Rugby teams in the Sports results cards. There has been no specifics stated on which Rugby Teams will be included and whether this will only be for UK based teams but if it includes the Super 14s, this could be a real winner for Australian Rugby Union fans.
The App should update automatically so wait for the notification to hit soon and if you do get it, let us know which Rugby teams you can find – Go Brumbies!
Update: I had issues with Google Now and cleared data, after a while I actually got an update. The APK has restored Google Now – Phew! – and also given me access to the new cards, which includes Rugby Union results – Brumbies, Warratahs etc – but it also includes NRL results :
