Google Now for Android updated with many new cards


Google Now has been updated with many cards, topics ranging from sports cards to new travel cards. First up is a card for car rentals. If you have an email with information about your car rental on vacation, Google Now will give you directions to the rental center along with your reservation number.

There is also a new concerts card. If you are going to a concert, you will be able to get ticket information on Google Now when you arrive. You can also get information about popular and relevant websites with concerts that may interest you.

The public transit card is also updated with seeing the last train or bus to your home from your workplace. The transit card also lets you share your transit information with friends and family to tell them you are on your way home from work, but you need to follow these instructions first.

When you search for items such as music artists, actors, TV shows, and filmmakers, you can be reminded of new albums, new TV episodes, and book releases. The TV card has been updated as well with the ability to tell you about the news on your TV, music on your TV, program information, and people mentioned. To activate the feature, you either can have a smart TV on your network or tap the mic and say “listen to TV”.

Finally, you can now get NCAA scores in Google Now when you add your favorite teams in the settings. That’s just in time for the new season.

The update should be rolling out over the next few days, but if you want the APK now, you can get it here. As always, the update requires Android 4.1+.
