‘Google Now’ Adds Intelligence to Android in Jelly Bean

By using a combination of current location, calendar status, and search history, a new feature of Android Jelly Bean, called Google Now, aims to provide you with information before you need it. For example, it’ll know you’re in a restaurant and suggest a great dish to try. Or, it’ll know that you have an upcoming flight and will keep you updated with flight status, and even tell you what time you need to leave your current location to make the flight on time plus show you the traffic info . You can access Google Now with a swipe up from the bottom of the screen, which is a great universal gesture.
