Google Now for iOS update brings hands-free voice control and notifications

Google Now for iOS got treated to a major update today. The latest version of the app got a host of new features which brought its functionality in line with that of its Android sibling.

The most notable new feature which the app update brings to iOS is the ability to receive notifications. The latter bring relevant information to the user when Google Now decides it is relevant.

Hands-free control is also on board. It is activated simply by saying “Ok, Google” when the app is open. There is also support for reminders which is similar to the one offered by Siri.

Other improvements include a number of new cards. They can show movie and concert information, including purchased tickets.
