Google Now - A Video Overview Of Its Features
The Google Nexus 7 is the first device to run Android Jelly Bean, which adds the new Google Now feature.
Google Now is a personalised mobile search application which is powered by the Knowledge Graph. In essence Google Now tries to ensure you get "just the right information at just the right time".
Google have now released a video , which can be viewed above, that shows you how to access Google Now on the Google Nexus 7 and outlines the main features of the new software. In order to open Google Now you either swipe-up on your tablet or use the Google Search icon at the top of the screen.
When you land on the Google Now screen you'll have access to a number of cards which display information relevant to you. Users can easily personalise which cards they want to see to ensure the service is optimised for them.
Cards will appear on Google Now when they've been updated to ensure your always kept up to date. Cards are available for a lot of different topics including Weather, Public Transport, Sports, Places and many more.
Google Now will be available on all tablets and smartphones which get updated to Android Jelly Bean and the folks at 3G have found the feature very useful on our Nexus 7.
