Last night, Google released a new update for the Google Search app in the Play Store. The new update mainly brings enhancements to the Google Now functionality with support for Movies, Public Alerts, the ability to select your favorite sports team and finally, support for Korean language.
With the new Movies feature, Google Now will automatically notify users of the timings of the movies playing in a nearby movie hall. The Public Alerts feature will automatically notify users of any emergency such as earthquakes or Tsunamis.
Lastly, post the update, users can select their favorite Sports team from the Google Now settings menu. This will then allow Google Now to notify you of all the upcoming matches and results of existing matches of your favorite sports team. As of now, the list of teams are limited to Soccer, Baseball and Football. The update is already live in the Google Play Store, and can be downloaded for free.
Oh! Google also released an update for Google Maps in the Play Store that brings turn-by-turn biking navigation to the app.
