The Google Search app — otherwise known as Google Now for Android 4.1 Jelly Bean devices — has just been updated in the Play Store. The update added Google Now support for movie showtimes with notifications appearing when either physically near a movie theater, or on the days you’re most likely to search for movies (like the weekend).

Google Now will also display various public alerts like storm warnings, earthquake alerts, etc. that are in your area. For sports fanatics, you can now save your favorite sports teams for real time updates via Google Now. Looks like Google Now is just getting better and smarter, it’s a shame only those of us on Jelly Bean get to enjoy it.
