Google recently added a ton of great new features to Google Now, its personal assistant available in the Google Search mobile app. Google Now has always been best when you’re traveling and need to check a million things at once. That experience got even better, as Google just added in car rental information, like reservation details and directions to the rental center. Trying to catch that 5:45 train home after work but running a little late? Google Now can check the status on that last train or bus home, so you’ll never miss it again. Media junkies can set reminders while they search, which will send them notifications when their favorite music artists or filmmakers come out with a new album or movie. These features are just the tip of the Google Now iceberg, with a handful more great new features added in the latest update. While Google Now is available on iOS, these features – and the fully-featured app – are currently only available on Android.
