Google Search for Android Updated, Adds Some KitKat Google Now Features

The Google Search Android app has been updated, throwing some KitKat goodies into the mix. Android 4.4 KitKat includes some improvements to Google Now, some of which are now included in the Google Search app. The update allows users with Android devices running Jelly Bean to experience a little taste of Android 4.4 KitKat.

Google has added cards to the Google Search for Android app, with the addition of a Website update card, News Topic card and a What to watch card. The cards will give Google Now the ability to update you on your favorite TV shows, what websites you should check out and breaking news topics.

In addition to cards, Waze traffic data has been added as well as repeat reminders, real-time scores for your favorite rugby teams and when your holiday shipments are ready to be picked up from a store.

If you haven’t received the update yet, head over to the Google Play Store and download the new update.
