Google Now will also be avaible on iOS devices: this is my source: http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2012/08/building-search-engine-of-future-one.html (see the 3th one!) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 178.117.216.230 (talk) 12:28, 17 August 2012 (UTC)

We're saying "currently"[edit]

Under 'History', we have: "Google Now is currently being tested and is expected to be released on platforms other than Android." As a reader, I don't really know if that's up to date. Should the wording be changed? Thanks -- Jo3sampl (talk) 14:52, 1 April 2013 (UTC)

I believe that is correct. There are indications in Chromium that Google Now will be included soon. --Bayonetblaha (talk) 17:17, 1 April 2013 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done — From the first paragraph of our Article: It was first included in Android 4.1 ("Jelly Bean"), which launched on July 9, 2012, and was first supported on the Galaxy Nexus smartphone. The service was made available for iOS on April 29, 2013 in an update to the Google Search app. Popular Science named Google Now the "Innovation of the Year" for 2012.[1]

So 'Google Now' has officially arrived. — Charles Edwin Shipp (talk) 19:48, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

Is Google Now the best option from Google?[edit]

From what I read, Google Reader was discontinued because of Apps and now Google Now is the answer, says Google. Is this in our Article? — Just asking, Charles Edwin Shipp (talk) 19:40, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

Where is voice recognition performed?[edit]

Does the voice recognition aspect of NLP get performed on the smartphone (or other mobile device) or on Google's servers? Anyone know? p.r.newman (talk) 16:40, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

History passage needs update[edit]

For example this sentence: According to Seth Rosenblatt of CNET, it is rumored that Google Now will also serve as iGoogle's replacement in November 2013. --Jobu0101 (talk) 18:12, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
