Google now is a proprietary Google tool/service that keeps track of events and shows information cards from various sources with updates as needed.

It attempts to act somewhat as an automated "personal assistant".

What type of cards does it show?

Updates within Google now are shown as cards:

  • Boarding Pass - retrieved from Gmail
  • Flight Information - from flights from boarding passes
  • Package Tracking - retrieved from Gmail
  • Sporting events (and scores) - manually added from the settings configuration
  • Appointments - retrieved from Google Calendar
  • Travel to your next destination - from airline confirmations emails in Gmail
  • Weather - from Geolocation API on the device

This information is gleaned from any number of sources, from your Inbox, Calendar and also from web sites you visit frequently.
