For those of you making use of an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean device and wondering when Google Now might be updated with some new features, we now know. The latest update has gone live in the Google Play Store and is ready for download. The changelog is more so an expansion of features that already existed, though there is a few new things as well:
For Android 4.1+ (Jelly Bean) devices, this update to Google Now includes:
- Movies - see movie showtimes and more
- Public alerts - receive emergency messages such as storm warnings and earthquake alerts
- Add favorite sports teams to follow in real time (from Settings)
- Support for Korea
As some may have noticed, sports team access was there previously but it was never active, so now it is. Also, Public Alerts used to come through Google Maps, they'll now also come through Google Now. it's a nice update, so be sure to grab it.
