Google Now updated with car rentals, commute sharing and more

Car RentalsGoogle is pushing a major update to its Google Search app on Android 4.1 (and above) powered devices, which brings a host of new cards support in Google Now.  The search giant is introducing or improving at least six Google Now cards in this update, so it will probably have something for everyone.

“From traveling to entertainment, breaking news and sports scores, the latest card additions to Google Now give you even more information without ever having to ask,” Android team noted in a Google+ post.

Coming to the newly introduced cards, the new cards include car rentals (Get reservation details and directions to the rental center directly in Google Now), concert ticket card (Google Now will have your event ticket ready when you arrive at the venue), commute sharing card (When leaving work, you can now choose to inform your loved ones that you are on your way home) and NCAA football scores (see real-time scores for your favorite NCAA team in Google Now).

Google Now also features updated TV card, which can tell you about the news mentioned and music playing in the TV show you’re watching and more.  With improved public transit cards, Google Now will now inform you about the last train or bus to home.

As always, not every card is supported in all regions.
