Google Now introduces a few new contextually aware features!



With a new music feature, tap the search results to bring them up.

Google Now has undoubtedly become one of Android's most popular features, and the company continues to add improvements to Cards to make its contextual application increasingly capable. Today, Google introduced more new features for Google Now, including a live TV feature and Google Offers.

Google detailed the new Cards in a blog post on Android's Google Plus page today. TV Cards, as they're called, work with Internet-connected televisions to help bring up more information about what's on-screen. Users must connect their Android device to the same network the television is connected to and then tap the "Listen for a TV Show" Card in the Google Now application to look up more information. This feature will display items like show factoids and a profile of the actors in the cast.

For the thrifty, the Google Offers Card will help you keep track of your saved offers. When you're near a store you've clipped an offer for, this Card will send you a notification about the nearby savings. A third new feature will let Google Now users play music from their phone with a simple voice command—"Play" artist or song. This music function also supports third-party apps like Spotify and SoundCloud.

The new Cards are available with the most recent iteration of the Google Search application.
