One of the most interesting and exciting features of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is Google Now. Google’s new virtual voice and search assistant much like Siri, only smarter. Being able to gather from Google surely helps their cause. We’ve seen plenty of the features outlined from Google themselves during IO last week. What you’ll see below however is an extensive hands-on video asking Google Now tons and tons of questions.
This doesn’t really need too much explanation other than the fact that I will say Google Now is simply amazing. This is the first initial release and we expect it to really grow into something excellent as it evolves. In its current form on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and the Nexus 7 it does tons of things great — but a few areas need improving. Voice recognition is extremely accurate, response time blows Siri out of the water, and the results are very simple and informative. Without further explaining, enjoy the video!
