Google Now app has plenty of great features

New features on Google’s personal assistant… 

Google Now, the app that the company is hoping will be more popular than Apple’s Siri, is making things even easier on the Android mobile platform than ever before. Google Now, which is the company’s answer to the virtual assistant on the iPhone, gives users all of the important information they are looking for each day, without them having to ask for it. The weather, sports scores, stock quotes, recently used apps and much more are all provided to the user so they do not have to go searching for them each time they want the information. Google Now is also taking Google Search one step further by allowing users to search just by recognizing the users handwriting.

The new Google Nexus 7 tablet and some of the Nexus smartphones already have the Jelly Bean update installed and ready to use for consumers wishing to get a look at the next best thing that Android can come up with. All you need to do to enable the feature on your device is go to Google.com settings in your mobile browser and turn it on there. The feature is disabled as a default, so you have to turn it on in order for it to work properly. After you do that, you can start writing right on your screen by tapping the handwriting symbol on the screen. You will be prompted to write anywhere on the screen and from there you can search by writing one word at a time, Google Now will do the rest.

Most of the users will experience the feature and love it, but that will be based on whether the users handwriting is legible. Those with sloppy handwriting or frequently misspell words are going to have a very different search experience. Google says the feature is available in 27 languages, including Chinese which is featured in a couple YouTube videos. The new Nexus family of smartphones and tablets will be watched very closely as they fly off the shelves week after week and users get a chance to try out the new operating system. The feature is available on any iOS device that has iOS 5 or above installed and any Android powered phones that are running Gingerbread or above. Tablets running Android 4.0 and above have the feature installed.
