Google Now gets new cards: car rentals, concert tickets and commute sharing
Google has included new Google Now cards in an update to Google Search for Android and improved some of the existing ones.
The new cards will include information about car rentals, concert tickets and even let you share your commute details with family and friends:
- Car rentals card: Get reservation details and directions to the rental center directly in Google Now, which together with the boarding pass and hotel reservation cards, makes Google Now your ultimate travel companion.
- Concert ticket card: Going to a concert? Google Now will have your event ticket ready when you arrive at the venue; along with popular, locally relevant websites, such as the upcoming events page for the venue.
- Commute sharing card: When leaving work, you can now choose to inform your loved ones that you are on your way home.
Additionally, the public transit card now includes information about the last train or bus to take home, and the TV card can now tell you more details about the news mentioned during the show or the music that’s playing thanks to a “listen to TV” feature.
NCAA football scores will also be delivered to you via Google Now, and you can set reminders for certain searches – including music, movies, filmmakers and TV show – so Google can alert you when there’s something new (album, book, or TV shows).
In order to get the new cards as well as the updated ones, you’ll have to update your Google Search app.
