Make no mistake, Google Now is the future of Android. What we see in the Nexus 5 and Google Glass updates tells us as much, and what we’re hearing around the rumor mill fits right in. Google is going all-in with Google Now and their slightly creepy but informative and useful contextual style of pre-search, or whatever you want to call it.
As predicted, an update to the Google Search app today makes it even better. A new Website update card will bring you the latest blog post from a site like Android Central (yes, we really dig that one), the improved News topic card will keep you informed on the news you care about, as determined by the news you search for on the mighty Goog, and the What to watch card will give you recommendations of things you’ll not want to miss on the boob tube.
Of course, you’ll need to update your Google Search app to see any of this, and as usual it’s a gradual rollout ( I like to call it a #trollout) and chances are you won’t see it right away. And no, this doesn’t attach Google Now to the Nexus 7 launcher, nor does it cure baldness or erectile dysfunction. But it will help you keep track of the things you’re interested in on the web and on the telly. Try your update luck at the Google Play link above.
