Google Search Update on Android Introduces Google Now Cards for Music, Movies, TV Shows, and Games


Google Search received an update moments ago during the Google I/O keynote, and it includes a number of new cards for Google Now. You’ll now be able to set reminders, see upcoming releases for your favorite media types (books, music albums, movies, tv shows, and video games), and view real time public transit updates. 

– Reminders (e.g. say “remind me to buy milk this evening”, “remind me to take out the trash when I get home”)
– Upcoming books, music albums, tv shows and video games you may like
– Real time public transit updates (select cities)
– Last train home (Japan only)

    ok – what am i missing – i dont see these settings? How do you get to them?? Sorry – dont use Google Search a lot but may now. 🙂

      Go into google Now, at bottom, change settings, or if you have all cards on already, all of the new cards will be on automatically.

      I’m still trying to figure out how to set reminders. I tell Now to set reminder, and nothing happens

  • This is pretty sweet. I was on Chrome last night on my laptop looking at some stuff for PCSX2, and after updating Google Search, PCSX2 forums and info popped up! Pretty nifty to me

    Do we get to set what TV channel and game consoles?

    • Justin Swanson

      No, hopefully they open that up like they did sports teams…

  • FknTwizted

    updated now is there a way to set up specific games, movies, etc…. or does it just tell me about ones coming out or what not?

    • Keith0606

      also wondering this. It would be awesome if we could get it to notify me if any of my favorite authors releases a new book for instance

    • droidrazredge

      I’m trying to figure this out too, but to no prevail. If anyone finds a way how to let me know.

    • Seth Schorr

      I think if you have done a search for a video game, a movie, an album, then when new info is available, it will notify you of this. Just like if you look up a news article, Google Now always would leave a card about an update to that info.

      • Justin Swanson

        But I want to _tell_ it what I’m interested in a setting somewhere so I don’t have to research when I flash a new ROM 😛

        • FknTwizted

          that’s what i would like similar to what they did with sports section.

    This uses the geo-location API to have location based reminders similar to Siri. Finally!

    Alternate link?

    • NexusPhan69

      Mine automatically updated. Maybe they’re using their own new staggered update feature. 😛

      It was not showing up for me in the updates section of my apps. I had to manually find and click on Google Search in my up to date section and then choose Google Search and then it had the option to update once I clicked on it. That’s how I updated mine.
