When the Google Nexus 5 was made available in stores, Google also released its latest Android 4.4 mobile operating system – and it contained a lot of updates regarding most of the applications that come with the software. Now, Google is incorporating some of these updates to older versions of Android such as the 4.1 Jelly Bean. Specifically, Google will be updating the Google Search application since it is one of the most important applications concentrating on Google Now. Aside from that, it also has the capacity in getting the Google Experience Launcher for the users.
Essentially, the update will focus on the “OK Google” as a command to Android devices if the user wishes to activate Google Search through voice recognition. It was a selling feature that Motorola used when it released its Droid handsets. But if you have not heard, this feature was also integrated in the latest iOS mobile operating system today.
Apparently, people call it “cards” – or the things that you can use if you want to find something on the internet through this voice feature. For instance, there is the card for Website update wherein there will be an integrated mobile RSS reader so you can follow the websites and blogs that you want. There is also the card for the News topic which is flexible in terms of the user’s preferences. To be exact, users can set the subjects or topics that they want to read on their mobile devices. The last one is the card about what to watch which gives recommendations of the popular television shows and movies. In a way, this card can also help you become more updated about the sports scores.
Aside from the cards and, the Google Search will also be updated to display real-time updates regarding traffic. The operating system will use Waze but it will depend if it is available in your location. In any way, it can also help you track your packages so you can predict when they will arrive or if you need to pick them up in stores. Lastly, the final update that Google will be incorporating is that users can now set reminders through the Search application. This means that the Calendar is not the only thing that they can use in terms of such task.
On the other hand, another advantage of the Google Search update is that there is a larger chance that users can get the Google Experience Launcher – since it is also one of the principal features of the Android 4.4 KitKat version. If the software did not update automatically in your phone, you can check the Google Play Store.
