With the Android 4.1 update, Google is integrating Google Now, a new personal assistant like service, allowing you to use your natural language to communicate with your device and perform searches, bringing up cards of information. Google Now is integrated into Maps, Search, Calendar, and more. The cards are intelligent and only show up when needed.
Google Now gets you just the right information at just the right time.
It tells you today’s weather before you start your day, how much traffic to expect before you leave for work, when the next train will arrive as you’re standing on the platform, or your favorite team’s score while they’re playing. And the best part? All of this happens automatically. Cards appear throughout the day at the moment you need them.
