Google had offered the personal digital assistant service Google Now for the Android platform for almost a year. Now the Google Now service is made available for the Apple iOS platform as a part of the Google Search app update. The new Google Search app for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad tablet brings Google Now integrated inside.
The Google Now user interface brings different information in a cards format. Each card pulls in data from Google and presents latest information about the weather, location, Flights, and sports. It also integrates maps to inform the user about the approximate commute timings. Google has also integrated Voice Search in it to make it similar to the Apple Siri.
Since the Google Now feature is now available along with Voice Search on the iOS platform, it would be interesting to see it compete with Apple Siri service. While Apple iOS based device users would be rejoicing, there are several users stuck on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich waiting to hear from Google.
Google Now does not directly compete with Apple Siri but brings along several features in interesting presentation to be consumed quickly and efficiently.
