Google Now integration included in latest Chrome alpha

 

Following over a year of speculation, Google has launched Google Now for its alpha version of Chrome, Canary. As suspected, Google Now integrates with the browser's notification center, pulling in weather, sports, travel, and other information. The functionality found in the desktop Google Now isn't identical to the mobile versions; some Cards are missing including one the shows stock market information, but it's likely Google will flesh out the service before bringing it to the masses.

 

The service is not switched on by default and, as Google Operating System reports, requires you to enable a flag in Chrome settings. Features debuted in the Canary build of Chrome can often take months to make their way to the regular version, but Google already has a support page ready for a full rollout. If you're interested in giving it a spin, you can download Chrome Canary here. Canary is intended for developers and, as Google says, "can sometimes break down completely," so it's not recommended for daily use.

Hope it hits the Dev branch soon, been one of the Android features I hoped would also get into Chrome on the desktop

I would expect it to land on the dev branch when it jumps to version 34 - which should be any day now.
