Google Now announced for Android
Google Now on Android aims to give you what you need, when you need it
Google has revealed a big part of its Jelly Bean Android update.
Known as Google Now, this clever feature knows when information is most relevant to you. This means instead of getting the bus you need to catch to get to work, Android will know when the bus will actually turn up, calculating a more accurate journey time.
This also applies to driving in traffic. Google Now tries to calculate your journey based on current traffic, helping you get the most accurate, time-relevant data it can.
A lot of this information comes from your Google search engine history and your calendar.
Android Jelly Bean 4.1 will launch on the Galaxy Nexus and the Motorola Xoom from mid-July.
Also a part of the new Android update is improved Google Voice Search, improved notifications, Android Beam, better photo management and more intelligent widgets.
According to Google's Hugo Barra, there are over 400 million Android devices worldwide, with one million activations occurring every day.
