Google Search Update Brings Google Now Widget, New Cards, and More
We knew it was coming, and like I predicted, it took less than a week for an update to bring us the new Google Now widget. Lucky for us, that’s not the only addition made in the latest update to the Google Search app.
If you’re fortunate enough to be running Android 4.1 or above, you’ll not only get the new widget, but new cards as well:
- Movie passes from Fandango
- Movies now includes ratings from Rotten Tomatoes
- Real estate listings from Zillow when in the market for a home
- Music button when a song is playing in voice mode (US only)
- Support for US college sports
Google has big plans for Google Now and reminds us that this is only the fourth update since its launch — so expect big things!
