If you happen to own an Android Jellybean device with the mobile Google search assistant, your smartphone just became handier. The very useful Google Now which is a part of search, got a few changes in its latest update. So, you may ask what’s new.

The update to the search assistant brings new cards which will display public emergency alerts, sports updates for your favorite teams, and movie showtimes when you are near a theater. These add to the ten cards already available on Google Now.

The emergency public alerts catch national warnings and will pop-up for any event like earthquakes and hurricanes. The real-time alert could be especially useful if you live in areas prone to massive weather upheavals. For the fun side of things, Google Now recognizes the particular days you go to watch a movie and where. If you are in proximity, Google Now will pop-up with relevant information on any film playing close to the location. You can of course, search for a movie and it will come back with info relevant to your location. Also, sports fans will dig the new feature where you can manually feed Google Now the name of your favorite sports team, and it serves you back with the latest update on any game being played.

Another feature, that seems natural because of Samsung, is that Google Now has added support for Korea. These changes are Android 4.1 Jellybean specific. Download the update from the Google Play Store.
