Google has just released information about their new operating system Android 4.1 Jelly Bean which is to be released soon but there are currently many Android phones that haven’t got the Ice Cream Sandwich update yet.
Nevertheless, in the I/O event Google showcased some of the features that can be expected in the operating system but here’s what we know about Google Now.
Google Now is a service that basically tries to make life easy for you, it takes everything about the user and what they previously wanted to know and combines it to keep everything on track, automatically. By swiping the home screen you’ll get a list of different cards that knows what your day looks like. It knows what sports team you like, your calendar, travel plans, usual route to work and nearby places that you might want to eat.
For example, you like to go for a jog everyday at 1pm but you have a flight at 2pm. Google Now, recognises this and tells you that it’ll take only 20 minutes to get to the airport, and that the flight has been delayed to 3:30pm, letting you know that you can still go for a jog.
Google Now, figures you out based on search history, it’s gives you what you want from device but this time it does it automatically.
