Via an app update to its current Search app on iOS mobile devices, Google released Google Now on Monday.
Google Now is a feature within Google’s existing Search apps for Android and iOS mobile devices that boasts predictive searching: information, such as driving directions or traffic information is sent to you without you having to search for it yourself. Your mobile device predicts and sends you the information you’ll need to complete everyday tasks based on where you are and what you’re doing.
Google Now is nothing new to Android users, who have been playing with it since last June. In addition to predictive searching, Google Now also offers automatic news updates and travel tips based on your location.
