Updated Google Now Takes Over iPhones and iPads

By | October 23, 2013

Google Chrome’s voice activated search tool, Google Now, has been updated for iPhone and iPad users. Updates to the app include the following:

• Google will send you a notification for items like upcoming appointments and flight information. (Before, the iPhone version made you open the app to see that stuff.)

• You can set reminders. Reminders can also be tied to location. For example, you can tell Google to remind you to do the dishes when you get home.

• You can import items like concert tickets, boarding passes, and car rental confirmations that are already stored in your Gmail account.

• There’s an option to set reminders for when your favourite actors or TV shows will appear on screen. Same goes for when your favourite artist is about to release a new album.

• Voice search has been improved, letting you search with the command “Ok, Google.” There’s no need to tap a button.

In short, this new technology tool has what it takes to be a much better virtual personal assistant than the renowned Siri. Small businesses can integrate its rich features to their daily tasks such as handling transactions or scheduling meetings or booking.
