Google Now can show movie showtimes based on how a user runs a search, or if the GPS in your phone detects a cinema close by. Public alerts can be displayed during emergencies, and will display information and warnings about storms, earthquakes and other emergency situations.

 

Sports information lets users manually input their favorite teams, after which they'll receive scores and updates on their team. The latest version of Google Now is available in the Google Search app, which is available for Android 4.1 Jelly Bean users through Google's Play Store.
