Concert tickets are included in the new update, as well as an update to Now's public transport cards that will notify a user when their last train leaves home. There's also a new football card that will let you check out the latest NCAA scores, if that's your type of thing. There's also a new reminder feature, too.

 

The reminder feature is accessed by tapping on the "remind me" button when searching for media, which will have Google Now notify you when your favorite TV show, band or author releases something new - a very, very cool new feature. Even better, is an updated TV card which will detect the TV program you're watching using your smartphone's mic, after which it will provide you information on the program you're watching.
