There’s no denying that Google Now has received quite a bit of positive press since it was unveiled at I/O last week. Many have compared the service to Apple’s Siri, but there’s really a lot more that Google Now can do. The beauty of the service is that it learns your habits based on your location and personal searches, producing relevant and actionable information which is specific to your needs.
According to the official Google Now page, the service is able to pull up details about flight information, traffic, public transit, locations, sports, appointments, weather and even basic calculations. We could write a half dozen paragraphs about what Google Now can or can’t do, but we thought we’d share a video which puts the service to the test with 47 questions which cover most of the use cases Google has thought up (so far).
Have any of you has been able to test Google Now yet? Does the service add value to your Android device or is it a gimmick which will soon be forgotten?
