Few days ago, we heard from one of our reliable sources that Google will soon launch its amazing predictive search tool Google Now to desktop (for Windows and Mac) Chrome browser. And finally, Google has launched Google Now for desktop Chrome browser.
Support for Google Now first appeared in a beta version of Chrome released last month, but the company has been working on the migration for months. However, the latest version of Chrome will display many Google Now cards you’d normally see on your Android or iOS smartphone, including weather, sports scores, event reminders, and a preview of your commute to and from work.
To turn the feature on, all you need to do is sign in to Chrome with the same Google Account you’re using for Google Now on mobile. If you use Google Now on multiple devices, you will need to manage your location settings for each device independently (change Location Reporting on Android and iOS). Cards will only be visible on your computer if you use Google Now on your mobile device and if you’re signed into Chrome.
Google Now cards will be visible in Chrome’s notification center, which appears either at the top or bottom of the screen depending on whether you’re using Windows or OS X. The notification center can also be configured to displays alerts from Gmail, Google Drive, and Hangouts.
Google has mentioned that although it has launched Google Now on the desktop, it will start rolling out “over the next few weeks.” If you’d rather avoid the wait, the option can be enabled immediately by visiting chrome:// flags in your browser and toggling Google Now notifications to “enabled.”
