Google now

Roll out begins today, should be available for all in the next few weeks

We've seen Google Now for Chrome on the desktop for folks using beta builds, but starting today it's pushing out to all users. You won't need to fiddle with any settings or flags or do any sort of wizardry, but you will need to be on the latest version of Chrome — which you should be anyway for security reasons. Once Google Now for Chrome is available for you, you use it just like you would on the phone, with reminders and cards in your tray, and voice commands through the Google website. For more information, see this Google help topic page.

Any way to force update? (I hate google for doing it in steps)

Zig261 says:

You have to wait. It comes automatically if you're on the latest chrome.

And so much data to be collected.

So much cool stuff for the cost of my data.

jkayakj says:

The data is collected either way.. So at least here it is also being aggregated to provide something else...

Mayoo614 says:

They already have that data, they are just displaying it elsewhere.

i just restarted my computer and it popped up that i have it now

dc9super80 says:

I am excited to get it, but I am still waiting. I restarted but nothing yet.

tillerrw says:

Still waiting here too. It's nice that they can push all of the April Fools stuff at one time but I'd prefer something useful like Google Now be pushed out quicker.

Check the link they provided. I'm sure it's very simple.

EVO 4G LTE still doing work!

zackmack7 says:

Oh yeah! The one feature I do want is to be able to rearrange the cards, on both mobile and in the browser

Will this work on a chromebook?

vansmack says:

Yes. It was in the Dev build of version 34 last month and will be rolling out to the stable build over the next two weeks.

Is this available in the UK? Got the setting ticked in chrome://flags but I cannot see Google Now on my desktop

Ryano89 says:

My version of Chrome is up to date but I just realized that I don't even have the little notification thingy in the bottom right of my screen any more. Anyone know what could have happened to it?

Ryano, mine is the same as yours. What country are you in?

Ryano89 says:

I'm in the US. I used to have the notification symbol, I don't know where it went

Follow this link to read how to enable (or re-enable) the notifications and/or hide the notification icon.

tillerrw says:

My notifications are set but I still don't get the icon in my system tray. Strange as it is showing on my other computer.

When I dismiss a card on the desktop will it also dismiss on my phone?

DrLouie says:

That is a great question. Hopefully someone using the beta build can answer that question for us.

Now if Google fixed the scaling issues with the Surface Pro devices. I mean, I had to disable display scaling on high hpi settings and enable zooming to 125%, and it still look weird. Can I also mention that on my Surface Pro 2, there is no option for it to run in Windows 8 mode? D:

draken says:

What version is needed for this? I have version 33.0.1750.154, and the Google Now option is grayed out when I click on the Chrome icon in my task bar. When I check, it says I have the latest version.
