Google Now being ported to Ice Cream Sandwich

One of the best things about the Android Community is the fact they are always willing to help development for the greater world of Android. Take Google Now for example. The awesome new Siri-besting voice assistant announced alongside Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. We all want it, and developers from XDA are already hard at work making it work on Ice Cream Sandwich.

This brand new feature is extremely awesome but currently is only available for the select few using an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean device, or a few of the JB ROM's released too. The folks from Droid-Life spotted some awesome development under way bringing Google Now to all, and we can't wait to give it a try on more devices.

As usual the folks from XDA Developers are hard at work staying up all hours of the night working to get this figured out, and it appears they are quite close. You can install Google Now and the new search bar right to Ice Cream Sandwich with their modded APK, tweak a few settings and permissions, and give it a try today. Sadly it still isn't working with voice, which is one of the coolest features but surely they'll get it all sorted out soon.
