iPhone and iPad user will now start enjoying Google’s intelligent personal assistant which until now has been available for Google’s Android operating system. Google Now is an extension of Android’s native Google Search application, and it uses a natural language user interface to answer questions, make recommendations, and perform actions by delegating requests to a set of web services.
According to the official Google blog;
Google Now for iPhone and iPad is available as part of the updated Google Search app. Together, Google Now and voice search will make your day run a little smoother.
Google Now can show you the day’s weather as you get dressed in the morning, or alert you that there’s heavy traffic between you and your butterfly-inducing date—so you’d better leave now! It can also share news updates on a story you’ve been following, remind you to leave for the airport so you can make your flight and much more. There’s no digging required: cards appear at the moment you need them most—and the more you use Google Now, the more you get out of it.
Google Now is also a competitor to Samsung’s S voice and Apple’s Siri. It will be interesting to see how this plays out as Google takes on Apple at its own home ground with a rival personal assistant.
Get the Google Search app with Google Now from the App Store. Drag it to the tray, open it, sign in and you’re ready to go.
