Tip: Add Guru On Your Gtalk List and Receive Google Now Like Answers Via Chat

A few days ago, an XDA member stumbled upon a neat trick. If you love Google Now or don’t have Jelly Bean and can’t access it yet, then this is for you. Using Gtalk, simpy add user, “[email protected]” – then, ask away! Guru can give you answers to basic questions just like Google Now. So far, it handles sports, weather, word definitions, translations, web queries, and calculations.

Go into the future, much like Google Now, maybe we can expect greater and more advanced things to come from Guru. For now, it’s a neat little trick that some of you should enjoy.

      I have never used Talk before and have no idea what it does, Guru is the only contact in it now. Nice to know the app does something now, if only one thing.

    “all times are Kenya Time” haha sweet.

  • I thought this was getting axed with the other Google Labs stuff.

  • Inquizitor

    Ha, I remember adding this thing like 2 or 3 years ago. Thought it was so cool but almost never used it.

    And here I am still using smarterchild on AIM!

    • Sometimes when no one was on I would resort to talking to bots.

    • Daniel Maginnis

    Pretty cool. Only issue is that they give me the weather in Celsius.

    • As an American, I fail to see the problem. Fahrenheit needs to die.

      • nightscout13

        I have to agree with you here. Majority of the world uses the metric system, and the USA and GB need to get with the program.

  • Holy crap this is awesome.
