Starting now, looking up information about the World Cup within the Google Search app will pull up specific details on who's playing where, who's competing next, and who's beating whom. The World Cup takes off next week, and rather than installing a dedicated app just to get the basics, Google has you covered.


The app is ready to kick back match schedules, starting with the opening Brazil vs. Croatia game on June 12th. Once a game begins, searching for world cup or your favorite team will pull up live scores, rosters, and highlights.


This feature has been available in a limited rollout since the 4th of this month, but now Google says it is available widespread.

      Ghana my team has been put in an impossibly strong group! Germany and Portugal! **wears tinfoil hat** I suspect they plan to rob us of victory as they did in South Africa

    I still don't see any way to save your country's team to Google Now. It doesn't show up like other sports teams in the settings.

    All my heart and hope is to Colombia.

    It always makes me smile when hearing Americans talk about football. Reminds me of @USASoccerGuy.
    No offence intended but just different countries and colloquialisms.

    Still no "Ok Google" in Portuguese.
    The hell, Google? It's a matter of changing a string to enable this.

      You probably have WRONG settings...you have to set English language as a primary language inside Google Search app.

      • http://mwinter.in/ Yan Gabriel Minário

        I'm talking about the lack of hotword recognition in Portuguese.

        • Benjamin Pavel

          Again i will say it...check the settings!
          I live in Slovenia and the command works perfectly! :)

          • http://mwinter.in/ Yan Gabriel Minário

            Yep, it works if voice recognition is set for English, but if you want to give handless commands with Portuguese you simply can't.

  • SyncV2

    Let's go Croatia! Beat the hosts for the whole world to see!
