Google Now, the app which was available only for Android users so far, will soon be coming coming to iOS devices such as iPhone and iPad. The Google Now app built for iOS, shown in a YouTube video, consists some major features such as real time data acquisition and predictive actions.
Google reportedly posted the promotional-style clip on the YouTube accidently, only to be pull it back minutes later; however, an Engadget tipster could successfully download the video before it was removed (watch the video below).
The speaker in the video appears to be the same as the one featured in the original Google Now promotional video from last year. According to the leaked video, using the iOS version of Google Now is as simple as swiping up from the main screen.
The low-resolution promotional video further states that the app will be offering all other goodies such as contextual data cards and alerts. The narrator of the video lists out a slew of predictive features offered by the service including real time navigation rerouting, air travel updates and sports scores.
However, before we jump to any conclusion, it should be noted that the authenticity of the report is yet to be confirmed because this can be an impressive fake, although the overall style and narration mirrors a close similarity with Google's previous video ads promoting Google Now for Android product.
As its official website states, Google Now offers to provide the 'the right information at just the right time.' The app aggregates a whole lot of information that a user would need as his day progresses including traffic, flight notifications, transit information, reservations, weather, stocks, packages, movie times, birthday alerts and more. "It tells you today's weather before you start your day, how much traffic to expect before you leave for work, when the next train will arrive as you're standing on the platform, or your favorite team's score while they're playing. And the best part? All of this happens automatically. Cards appear throughout the day at the moment you need them," the website explains.
Google now was first launched on Android handsets in 2012 and its iOS arrival delay may be due to App Store approval.
