If you’ve got a computer with the Chrome desktop browser installed — good news! Starting today, you’ll now have the power of Google Now at your disposal. Google announced the news on their Google+ page and says the update will be pushing out to Chrome browsers (stable channel) over the next few weeks, so don’t freak out if you don’t have it quite yet.
Because Google Now relies on both the Chrome web browser and your Android/iOS device, you should make sure both are signed into the same Google accounts to reap the benefits. Once done, you’ll have Google Now cards displaying on the side of the Google homepage, showing you everything from weather, sports scores, traffic commute times, and event reminders — all on your Windows or Mac computers.
It was back in February that Google Now graduated from Chrome Canary to beta builds, with today marking the first time it’s now finally available to anyone running the stable (regular) versions of Chrome.
