I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I simply love adverts made by Google. Come to think of it, I’ve probably started an article off with that line before. But that’s because each time one is released, they remind me of how good technology has made our day-to-day life, and how it should be used a lot more than we use it at the moment.
Google Now is probably one of the best features of Android at the moment, and it’s packed with little features which could be useful at any time. I just found out about this feature yesterday, but it’s extremely useful and eliminates the need for a lot of popular applications.
As I covered yesterday, an update to the Google Search app for Android brought a number of new features, including widgets for the home and lock screen. However I was unaware that, in some places, the image at the top of the Google Now app is replaced with the Doodle from Google.com.
Google have just rolled out an update to Google Search, enabling a number of new features for Google Now, including the widget which was leaked earlier this week.
Here’s a neat little feature which could be making an appearance on Android in the near future. A widget version of Google Now, which displays a round-up of your cards, has been spotted on Google’s support pages, which has since been removed.
Personally, I really like the current method of accessing the entire app from the lockscreen, but it wouldn’t hurt to have a widget summarising the day.
It’s hard to know when we can expect to see this widget released, but now that it’s been leaked I doubt Google will keep it in the dark for much longer.
