Google is rolling out some changes to its dedicated Search app on Android, tweaking those ever useful Google Now cards.
There are more robust settings for the Now cards included which lets you turn on or off every different section of the recommended content Google throws at you. You can even get the app to notify you with a sound or vibration when you get an urgent update, for example from a site you follow or as goals are scored in a match.
There have also been changes to the voice controls, allowing you say 'Ok Google' even when the phones screen is locked. As a security measure, you can make it so that no personal information can be accessed in this way, for example phone numbers, to stop a random person chatting to your phone and sending inconvenient texts.
It's an iterative update from the company but a welcome one - Google Now doesn't get as much attention as its iOS or even Windows Phone counterparts but its a powerful and easy to use tool and any step which makes it more accessible is a good thing for the Android lot.
The Google Search 4.1 update is rolling out now, check Google Play to see if its available in your area.
