Google Search app updated with Google Now on Jelly Bean

Android users are in for a Halloween treat with Google Now features added to the Google Search app.

The update allows Google Now to integrate with a user’s Gmail account and pull new information regarding flights, hotel and restaurant reservations, and even tracking packages.

Location-based enhancements will also pull up Now cards with movie times when near a theater, upcoming concerts for favorite bands in the area, local events, and photos of nearby sightseeing spots.

Google updates across the board

The search app update piggybacks on the announcement of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, which brings new Photo Sphere functionality for Street View-like photos of your surroundings.

Jelly Bean 4.2 will roll out on November 13 along with the newly announced Google Nexus 4 handset and Nexus 10 tablet, both of which will launch with the latest OS installed.

The Google Nexus 7 will complete the Android trinity when it launches later in mid-November, also with Jelly Bean 4.2 in tow.

While the new OS update and Android devices are still a few weeks away, the Google Search app update is available for Android 4.1 users now in the Google Play store.
