All The Cards That Google Now Supports

Google Now has a whole bunch of cards that are not very obvious at first. They only appear when Google thinks you need them most and are mostly based on your searches, current location and calendar entries.

I’ve only ever seen a few Google Now cards, but that’s mostly because the others I would have no use of at all. Here is the list of Google Now cards you can get.

There are quite a few Google Now cards as you can see, but you’ll probably only use very few. Google will inevitably keep updating the service with more and more cards because they are very useful. Also with all the rumours it’s coming to iOS, it’ll be a very good alternative to Siri.
