A new flavor of the Google Search application is now available for the owners of devices running under Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, with brand new features packed inside, the same that were announced for the new Android 4.2 platform release.

Following the update, users will notice that the Google Now application works with Gmail (although in English only).

Moreover, the app will make it easier for users to keep track of their Flights, Restaurant reservations, Hotel confirmations, Events and Packages, Google announced.

Basically, the entire Google Now experience has been upgraded, so that users could stay on top of what interests them the most easier than before.

“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,” Google notes about the new Google Now.

“And the best part? All of this happens automatically. Cards appear throughout the day at the moment you need them.” The same as before, all that users need to do to launch Google Now is to swipe up.

There are new Now cards for users to take advantage of, such as nearby attractions & photo spots, movies opening in theaters, concerts & more.

Furthermore, the application comes with support for new voice actions, such as launch apps, schedule meetings & check when your next appointment is.

“Google Now puts you in control: at any time, adjust or turn off individual Now cards within Settings,” Google explains.

The updated application will also provide users with info on Movies, Concerts, Stocks, breaking news and the like, in addition to the aforementioned new features that Google has packed it with.

Those who own an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean-based device should head over to the Google Play Store now to download the latest flavor of Google Search.
