Google NowÂ aims to automatically “surface” out of your calendars, apps, and personal records the information you need during the day without you having to summon it.Â Google Translate is an app that turns your smartphone camera into a translation tool.
Google NowÂ pinpoints information such as traffic conditions and sports updates based on a users’ past behavior with the device. Sports nuts who have a history of checking for updates from their favorite teams every morning may find that their phone now automatically opens a link to the relevant information at that time of day.
Google Now can also link with travel. Searching for a specific flight will add a card listing departure times and gate numbers to the travel section of your Google NowÂ page.
If you take a particular flight often, then schedules may be automatically updated to what Google calls your “card,’ or a notification that’s anÂ automated blurb, giving you the lowdown.
When you have a flight, Google Now checks traffic so you can know how long it’ll take to get to the airport.Â It also updates flight delays and traffic conditions to the airport for flights you’ve recently searched for.
Point your smartphone’s camera viewer at a sign, and look at the foreign-language text on the screen.
You donâ€™t need to take a picture or be connected to the Internet for Google Translate to decipher the word and provide a translation.
