Android 4.2, JellyBean Update Improves on Google Now

The voice recognition assistant is Google’s answer to Apple’s Siri, which was introduced on the iPhone 4S during the fall of 2011.

Some of the recent improvements made to Google Now include its ability to tell the user about events happening near their location or provide suggestions to help with their research.

Google Now will also be more useful during the holiday season, as it now can tell the user what the weather will be like at their destination when they plan on traveling to see family.
