One of the coolest features in Jelly Bean, Google Now, just got its first major update since Android 4.1 was released. The update brings some oft-requested features:

  • Movies - see movie showtimes and more
  • Public alerts - receive emergency messages such as storm warnings and earthquake alerts
  • Add favorite sports teams to follow in real time (from Settings)
  • Support for Korea

Most of these features are the perfect use-case for Google Now, so it's great to see El Goog already bringing new and intuitive features to the table.

The update is available in the Store now, so go get it!
