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.
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.
