Meet The Google Now Personal Voice Assistant
Google Now, the Mountain View, Calif. company's personal assistant, will debut later this month along with Android 4.1, Jelly Bean. It serves up information on the phone running Google's operating system related to weather, traffic, appointments, travel, flights, public transit, places, and sports. Based on current location and Web history, the service provides information like traffic conditions and alternate routes before leaving the house for work. For example, when near a subway station, Google Now serves up information on the next trains.
