Google Now Is Coming To Desktop

Google Now is an advanced context and location-aware service that analyzes your data and behavior to provide you with information where and when you need it. Available within the reach of a thumb, it has become a key feature in Android phones. If you use it or you're curious to try it out, you will soon have a chance as Google is bringing this functionality to the Chrome.

So far, Google Now is an experimental feature implemented in the latest alpha release of Google's browser. As soon as you sign into Chrome, it will connect with other services and display elegant cards with weather, sports scores, commute traffic, and event reminders. Those that are locati0n-based, will require an Android or iOS with Google Now configured on it.

In order to try Google Now, you need to be running a Canary (testing) build of Chrome. You can install it alongside the stable version of the browser, so you are not risking anything. Then, open a new tab, go to chrome://flags/#enable-google-now, and change the setting from "Default" to "Enabled". Turning it off is easy as pie. Just open the Notification Center (bell icon near the address bar), click the cog icon, and uncheck the box next to "Google Now".

Since Google Now is being tested now, adding it to the stable release of the browser is only a matter of weeks.
