As part of the updates to Google Search being introduced at I/O, Google Now is also getting a nice update with some new cards. Probably the most useful is a new voice reminders tool ? you can tell your Android device to remind you to do something, and it'll bring up a quick dialog to let you set a specific time and then tap once to save the reminder. It's quite similar to adding reminders in iOS with Siri, though it appears there's no dedicated app to manage them.

Other new cards include public transportation data and a a list of new upcoming books, music, or movies you might be interested in (gleaned from your Google Play history, no doubt). There's also some new personal search features for those signed up with the Gmail search field trial ? you can ask Google Now to send emails or search for specific photos you've saved in Google+. These features are available for Android now; the Google Search app update is live in Google Play.

Developing. Check out our Google I/O Live Blog for the latest updates!

Eff Google Now... All it's doing is draining my battery. Disabled it within 2 days.

Dont have any cards enabled unless its Football season. Otherwise, I just use GNOW to do voice searches and functions like setting my alarm.

I'm trying to use the new google now, but it tells me to set my home location. But when ever I try to give it an address or anything it says "No matching places found"
