For all you Androids running Jelly Bean on your device, Google Now is adding some new cards today that might make life a little easier for couch potatoes and bargain hunters. The update — available right now in the Google Play Store — brings the addition of TV cards, giving you useful information on everything from where you’ve may have seen these actors before, to background information on their characters.
There are some caveats, however. First you’ll need your Android device and an internet connected TV registered on the same wireless network. From there you can “Listen for a TV show,” to pull up useful information while you watch. And yes, guys. Unfortunately, this is US only.
Another useful addition to Google Now are Google Offers. While you’re running around doing errands, Google Now will pull up nearby offers from stores closest to you. Now you’ll never miss out on a deal with Google Now on your phone.
