With the release of Chrome OS version 34 in the dev channel, Google has finally added Google Now to its operating system for laptops and desktops. The feature has arrived 11 months after the first hints trickled out Google Now was coming to Chromebooks. The addition was first noted by developer and Google open-source Chromium evangelist François Beaufort. He explains you’ll only see a subset of the Google Now cards you see on your mobile device because Google Now for mobile uses your device’s location. To access Google Now on your Chromebook, you’ll need to switch to the Chrome OS dev channel and make sure you’ve got thelatest version. Next, you’ll have to enable the experimental enable-google-now flag after navigating to chrome://flags. You can turn off the feature by disabling the flag.
