Google has added some interesting new cards to Google Now for Android. The features come in the latest update of the Google Search app.

Google has added a Website update card, which could mean more traffic for publishers. It brings the latest posts from sites the user frequents, “so you’ll never miss a story.”

Website Updates

There’s a new News topic card, which will show users fresh articles from around the web on topics of interest.

The “What to watch” card gives users movie and TV recommendations when they’re “staying in” (remember, Google Now knows you every move). This is a nice complement to the TV show episode reminders launched a while back.

Watch Now

Google Now will also now show traffic incidents while you’re on your commute, utilizing real-time data from Waze. Google added this data to Google Maps on the desktop last week.

You can also now set repeat reminders , get real time scores from rugby teams and see when packages are ready for in-store pickup.
