Google now is the new assistant that has been imbedded into Jelly Bean to make your life easier. Head down below for more details.

Being able to check the weather, here personalized results and more all with ease is quite nice. For more details head to our Google Now coverage live from Google IO. Google has just launched an impressive landing page that will show you everything you can do and expect from Google Now. This is their new virtual assistant, and so far it’s quite nice.

Testing out the features on the new Nexus 7 were a blast, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on the Galaxy Nexus too. Google has added a quick direct unlock to Google Now on the new lockscreen, as well as allowed you to long-press home to pull up the option as well. From there the assisting and personalizing is all done with ease.
