Google Now for Windows 8, RT, Windows 10 is Almost Here
There is already a Google Search application for Windows 8 devices (review incoming), as well as for Windows RT. When it was first released, Google Search didn’t have support for ARM device, but the Mountain View company made an update later on to include Windows RT support, as well. However, what most of us were craving for – Google Now, is not yet available for Windows 8 or RT. But that is about to change and probably very soon.
A recent Chrome flag spotted by a French developer is suggesting that Google Now is on its way to the Windows operating system. And there are enough reasons to suspect that it will hit not only Windows 8, but Windows RT, as well. For those that don’t know yet (albeit if you are here, it means you know), Google Now is an awesome tool, like an extension of what Google Search already does. For example, by a simple swipe gesture, it can deliver instant notifications about you or your activities, without you having to search for it.
Also, it can bring a number of what Google calls “cards”, which can cover the following fields:
- Public alerts
- Developing story & breaking news
- Research topic
- Boarding pass (limited)
- Activity summary
- Next appointment
- Restaurant reservations
- Friends’ birthday
- Your birthday
- Boarding pass (limited)
Google Now coming to Windows 8 and RT
Sure, it looks like a big list and you don’t really understand what exactly it means. Well, imagine that you are going to the airport, what Google Now will do is this – it will deliver informations about your flight status. As you approach the boarding time, Google Now will deliver your boarding pass (this is currently a limited featured). After landing, if you have an appointment, Google Now will show that to you. As you wait for the taxi, if there’s an important sport event that you’re interested in, Google Now will tell you the score. And many, many other things that this awesome new technology can do.
Do you want Google Now on Windows 8 and Windows RT? Hell yeah! Maybe this kind of tech is more suitable for smaller devices, but a tablet with Windows 8 or Windows RT is still a good device for your upcoming Google Now, right? We’re not sure if this means that Google Now is on its way to Windows Phone, as well, but we can only hope so. Anyway, the internal discovered Chrome flag is clearly making a hint towards the coming of Google Now to Windows 8 and RT. What else can we say that the fact that we are ready!
