When Google Now first arrived with Android 4.1, many folks referred to it as the Google alternative to SIRI. In reality, Google Now is much more than just a simple digital assistant, levering the full power of the web and Google’s services to provide an experience that is worlds above the competition.

Google Now is a voice-driven tool that goes beyond simple questions and web searches, providing notes and reminders, navigation information and so much more. The only major advantage held by SIRI has been its ability to ask for clarification on questions it doesn’t understand, but even that’s no longer the case thanks to a new Google Now update.

As you may already know, the updated Google Now will ask you for additional information in instances where it is needed.

Of course to really take full advantage of Google Now, it’s important to know exactly what it’s capable of doing. To give us a better idea of what’s possible with Google Now, Trendblog has put together a useful list of some of the key Google Now commands in a brand new infographic.


As you can see, the possibilities are nearly endless with Google Now, and things are only getting better with each Android update.

So how about it: what Google Now features do you use the most? What new functions would you like to see come to the voice-powered search assistant in the near future?
