The Google App is receiving an update this week that breaks Google Now into two separate feeds of information. One of the feeds will keep you up to date on your subscribed-to news, sports, and entertainment, while the other will be used to help you stay on track for the day.
The update is coming to Android first for now and will introduce a new set of buttons at the bottom of Google Now. The button on the bottom left will feature the news and sports and all of that info, while the button or tab on the right will get you into upcoming flight, reservation, and calendar info. The GIF below shows this well.
Some of you have had this tabbed approach off and on in recent months as Google tested it pretty widely from time to time. If you aren’t seeing it just yet, though, that’s likely because this is rolling out slowly. The beta track of the Google App received an update today, yet I still don’t have the tabs. I guess we’ll need to be patient.
