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. You can now find cards for car rentals, concert tickets, commute sharing, NCAA football and additional reminders; as well as improved public transit and updated TV cards. 

Car rentals card: Get reservation details and directions to the rental center directly in Google Now, which together with the boarding pass and hotel reservation cards, makes Google Now your ultimate travel companion.

Concert ticket card: Going to a concert? Google Now will have your event ticket ready when you arrive at the venue; along with popular, locally relevant websites, such as the upcoming events page for the venue.

Improved public transit cards: If you regularly take public transit, Google Now will now inform you about the last train or bus to home so you never miss it. 

Commute sharing card: When leaving work, you can now choose to inform your loved ones that you are on your way home. Learn more at http://goo.gl/bVUkLY

Set reminders while you search: When searching for music artists, movie actors, filmmakers and TV shows on Google, you’ll see a new “remind me” button on the panel by the search results. Click on it and a Google Now reminder will show up for new albums, movie releases or upcoming TV episodes.

Updated TV card: Google Now can tell you about the news mentioned and music playing in the TV show you’re watching, in addition to program information and people mentioned in show. Simply tap on the TV card if you have a smart TV or tap on the mic and say "listen to TV”.

NCAA football scores: Football season is about to start, and Google Now has you covered--you can now see real-time scores for your favorite NCAA team in Google Now.

These updates and more are available in the latest version of the Google Search app for Android 4.1+, rolling out today on Google Play: http://goo.gl/BPfyU

How much of this is US only? I don't mind but would rather you say in the post before I get too excited >___<
 
Thanks for the updates Google Now team! 
 
Google Now has been a fantastic addition to my life. Who would have thought... 
 
My thoughts exactly, +Chris Thomson - football season here in Australia has about 6 weeks left.. So +Google - wake up and check your Maps.. You're an international product now.. Start acting like it! 
 
I love how intuitive the app is becoming. Really wonderful progress since this started. I don't use it all the time, but when I do it comes in very handy!
 
Well, in any version the sports option is utterly useless in Australia. No Australian sports teams of any sport on Google now. :-(
 
I don't ever see me leaving Android, gotta love it!

Not receiving it
 
Google Now IMO is the greatest thing ever. 
 
How about the ability to turn on and off things like wifi? You know useful everyday things? Not things that will get used maybe once a year. 
 
+Android completely agree with the comments posted so far regarding support for Australian sport - AFL is a huge sport and has been completely ignored by Google Now :(
 
I have yet to have any of my flights or package info show up so I doubt I'll ever see my concert stuff.
 
+Nick Coad - yep, and there's even an American College Basketballer on the North Melbourne list.. Not the first American to play AFL, and confident not the last.. When US athletes want to play a real sport.. They'll come here! ;)

+Dan Kiser I've seen my package info, just gotta get an email that says "Tracking Number: #####" and Gmail will pick up on it and forward it to Now
 
I look forward to the "let them see your commute updates" feature. Now, how about NFL updates...
 
Makes me wish i lived in a decent County... 
 
Much of that won't work for me, because if it's relying on Gmail, my regular Gmail account isn't linked to Google Now. I wish you could link more than one Google account to it. It would then be far more useful to me. 
 
So which one of these new additions WILL work in Australia?
 
+Dan Kiser The flight information did work for me.  Took a trip to FL two month ago, and both to and return flight showed up on the day of the flight with time and gate information.  Package shipping notice also showed up for me as well, but i wish it would update itself to show that the package is delivered and not just shipped.
 
Finally an update. Looks like a feature packed update too!
 
Meanwhile in my application manager I cant send apps to my sd card so I had to un install google now to make space
Why why why
I want back this feature please android plz
 
At first I found this creepy but now its really an every day essential
 
I use it with pleasure on my Nexus 4 and 7 .
It's quite useful.

I also use the iOS app on an iPad.
Hope you will apply the same update for that platform.
 
Is there new updated Google Now?.. I have the latest one..dated 21st Aug
 
YES...college football!!! I cant find what the new version number is to see if I have the new version.
 
Google now is very US centric. I wish Google concentrated more on providing local content on a global basis.
 
I just did a voice search for what's the weather like and got search results in Google now... What's happening?
 
+Scott Beamer open Google Now. Press settings. Press accounts. Change the account Google now is tied to.
 
most of which still doesn't work for apps accounts eh?
 
LFM soccer teams please. Mexican soccer teams. Other then that its an awesome service. 
 
International Rugby and Cricket scores please!
 
My cards aren't working at all. Nothing
 
Please make this all available in german.
F. Ling
 
I am impress with Google Now. Wasn't quite sure if it was just to counter Siri at first but found out it is more than that. Especially, impressed with shipment track and driving route.  
 
I cleared the data on the app, now getting cards
 
+Aprianto Nursetiawan : to choose betweene Celsius and Fahrenheit you need to touch the little circled "I" in the upper right corner of the card
 
It's hard to be excited about NCAA football scores if they do like MLB and stop showing the score right after the game is over and start showing the upcoming game. Its pretty useless. 
 
Really nice updates. I hope US citizens will enjoy it. Meh.

Swedish Elitserien (hockey) would be nice! 
 
Some great additions here. Would love to see some of them on the iOS version too.
 
+Android +Google Now is the best soft tech I have seen on this planet. Kudos on not resting on the laurels. I quote Lexus' tagline, "Relentless pursuit of perfection". This applies to you too.
 
Doesn't do much for you if you're not in the US 
 
Make all Google Now features available in all countries, not only America.
 
Philippines are mostly they used Google. And I am using it too! Thanks for Google. Me too! receiving new updates.
 
+Mohammed Al-Sherif 
I hear that.  So many features are either not available in other countries or are incomplete (they are there but don't really work, like the news card for example).
I wish they would concentrate on making the existing features available for everyone before coming up for more and more features for certain markets.
 
+Mohammed Al-Sherif  It actually works just fine even if you live outside USA. You just need to change your phone environment to English and set up Google Now input language to English as well. 
 
Man its wack,wherever I am I just get weather and if im lucky some awful photos some doink took
 
+Martin Strnad - yep, it works if you're into American sports.. Try finding any Australian teams on it...

The potential is enormous, iff you live in the US, and +Hayden Coonan try looking for F1 :/
 
Great update! But still waiting for Dutch soccer scores ;-)
 
The only useful info Google Now gives me in the UK is the weather. Which for an Englishman is perfectly fine.
 
We wait in Germany . With Google Now ultra light 
 
Awesome, but are these additions available worldwide or just for US users ?
 
+Android Please DO NOT behave like Apple who only develops features that only work in the US market. Make a difference and start rolling those changes to other countries around the world.
 
With the tremendous amount of information Google has worldwide, I wonder what stops Google Now from supporting countries aside from the US. I only get weather updates. Pitiful. 
 
And for the rest of the world? Nothing worth mentioning. F1 results would be good to see.
 
Yep.. F1 even has a race there, yes? +Google - what's your explanation for myopathy? 
 
This is all great for the us citizens. But what avoid me in Sweden? I can't even search for apps! Note II 4G
 
Nice but takes too much time
Translate
 
Works great in the US any where else give up now. Some features work but not all.
 
Nice to see more updates to GN but there's nothing there that I'll use
 
How about adding sports scores for tennis?
 
in austria u cannot buy something from the googlestore - why?
 
The fact that NCAA football is now supported is pretty awesome. Honestly, Google Now is getting better and better.
Wei Loh
 
'Google Now is currently not available in your country'... :O
 
Does anyone know if this release fixes the location based reminders? For some reason they stopped working.
 
I just fixed mine. Clear location history. I had no cards for a week. 
 
Please add some more Scottish football teams. You have all the English minor league teams but nothing from any of the Scottish leagues.
 
Awesome! Can't wait to try it out.
 
+Suresh Ganapathy Yeah but only partially, because still: "Gmail cards are currently not available when using Google Now with a Google Apps account."
 
Great - all these amazing services are aviable only in the United States of Fuckeria!!
 
When are these things going to be available in the UK (and other countries). We don't even have package tracking info. How hard is it to scrape emails from amazon.co.uk (and all other amazon sites) as well as amazon.com

Come on Google, get your international act together.
 
Probably cause ur name is WANG! Most don't get it stuck like that. All in love bro! 
 
Wonderful news! I am looking forward to testing the updates on iOs as well! Thanks, +Google+ :)
 
So what... all of this google now service is only for US.. i wonder then don't even track national sports teams if they are not american

It sounds very greatful, but i,m very disepointed that the updates always very late in the netherlands are.
 
I agree, Now sucks pretty hard in Canada - and we're right next door to the action.
 
Realy on my tv, can't wait to try it any info on how and suggestions to do with a smart tv would be helpful, thanks google team.
 
GOOGLE? YOU GUYS AND GALS JUST REALLY REALLY ROCK!!
 
+Android +Google Deutschland You guys should work on bringing these features worldwide faster. It is a no go that people outside the US don't get hands on the newest Google Now features.
 
Way to stick it to Windows Phone users once again!
 
PLEASE expand Google now options in Australia! AND bring Gmail cards to Google Apps Users!
 
Hello I tried all ways to contact you on the official wep, I I have nexus 4 I want tell about a bug on the new version 4.3, when you open video camera if you start recording a video try to take a picture while you recording the camera will freeze and the only way to stop is to press the back boton you can't stop it from the red boton or take onther picture while recording the please fix this bug as soon as possible, best regards

has anyone in Australia got this new update?
 
All nice and good...

however, when will there finally be NON-US centric information available for Google Now?
 
Well, I didn't get the new commute sharing feature with the latest update (Nexus 4).
Translate
 
Please bring S4 Google Play Edition to Canada!!!!!?
 
I'm hoping my google now kicks in. It doesn't do anything when i go to work or come home and I get packages delivered all the time. I also use it for all my searches for about 3 months now. It tells me the weather, and 'view nearby events'. Nothing else.

When will AT&T GS4 phones get the update? I am still on V 2.6. Waiting for V 2.7.
 
Google Nothing in China:(
 
I hope future android think about battery , battery must powerful and long time online. 
 
This is good, also I seen a commercial by Samsung where they used their remote control as a audio device to find a movie on tv. I have a Google tv and that would be nice to addition to Google now! 
 
When is the Samsung Galaxy 3 getting Jelly Bean 4.3 or 4.2.2 because is now too long overdue
 
This version still replaces the MLB sports score card with the next scheduled game right after the game is over. Clearly no one at Google is a sports fan or they would realize how useless scores are that disappear right after the game.

+Monica Gonzales if you use the voice command "Listen to TV" the TV Cards will show even if you do not have a smart TV. Try it out.
 
Cannot get over how much I love this app. The best thing I've ever done has been making the switch from iOS to Android. I'm very happy to be working for a Telco in Australia - I can share my love for Android with all my customers and possibly inspire them to take up a device to make their lives so much easier.
 
I love Google now... But I had to stop using it as it was killing my battery... Anyone else have this issue?

Have the Galaxy Nexus phone. Since the device automatically updated to Jelly Bean 4.3, everything has slowed down and all my apps keep crashing or rebooting.

All of them!

I tried to check on Jelly Bean issues using Google on the phone and that app kept rebooting, so now I'm commenting using my laptop.

Is there a way to get back to 4.2?

Or will there be a fix soon?  Right now the device is only good for making phone calls.  I expect more from something called a "smart" phone.
 
So college football doesn't show the school name on the score card.  Please Google, there are a lot of tigers, etc.  You should do like everyone else and show the school name.  Plus, there are no logos shown (you can't even tell what sport it is).  Overall, the college football implementation is pretty poor (looks like it was hacked together at the last minute).
 
I'd love for some of this to work outside the US. All that works here is the weather and some limited maps integration, both of which I have better apps for. Oh and a birthday icon.

I don't need to do anything, and phone will turn by itself and my alarm will be on at 5:45 am I check this feature on android phone I can't find it, anyone can help me if android has this feature? and feature is like blackberry password manager: this is very nice as you can keep all your password on one, as we cannot remember all password we use. did Google has app for password manager? these 2 are my concern on android phone.
