Ahh, the familiar backward countdown from boarding time: “I need to arrive an hour before my flight, it takes 40 minutes to get there, so I should leave home by… Oh, but I’m leaving from Mom’s house after dropping off the cat...” Well, starting today, Google Now can work your airport timetable out for you. Cards that used to remind you that you needed to be somewhere by a certain time will tell you when you should plan to leave instead (which is far more useful). You can specify where you’ll be leaving from, if you’re driving or taking public transport and how early you’d like to arrive—just tap the card and you’ll see those options—and Google Now will do the rest. The update is available in the Google Search app for Android, which you can download now from Google Play: http://goo.gl/gZ5VHV
