The first game of the World Cup kicks off on Friday morning at 6am AEST, when host country Brazil plays Croatia. Google recently added in World Cup results to Mobile and desktop searches, but now you can follow your national team in Google Now.

Australia World Cup Football

The option to add any one of the 32 teams playing in the World Cup, is now available in Google Now settings. Simply hit the wand icon at the bottom of Google Now and then hit ‘Sports’, then ‘Add a team’, and finally type the name of your country – to follow Australia you have to actually type Australia, unfortunately Socceroos won’t work.

The Australia team has a soccerball…Ok, Ok Football on the right hand side. This is good to see, especially after Google made a slight error with Cricket and NRL icons when it first launched.

Check it out now, and add your team to Google Now.

Cue ‘Where is AFL results for Google Now?’ comments.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Off topic, but did you fix your GPS?
I tried poorly in a tweet to explain that it’s a common physical problem with Nexus 5’s. It happened to me when after I pried off the back of my N5 out of curiosity. The contact attached the back doesn’t touch the contact on the main body of the phone. All it needs is a little bit of cardboard to push the contacts into touching each other better.


Does anyone who follows the Australian Cricket team actually get updates? I get update cards on all the other teams I follow but nothing on them.
