In an effort to display more useful info for those who may not always use Google Now, Google is rolling out a new feature for its Google Now Launcher that shows an info card underneath the search bar on the homescreen.
Not everyone is getting this feature so far, but some people who have the Google app beta are already seeing it. The mini cards will take you to the card in Google Now when tapped, and can be dismissed by hitting the small “X.”
The feature definitely seems useful, as it puts necessary information right on your homescreen rather than in your notification shade. We’re curious how it will work with the Pixel’s new search widget though. Hopefully the feature will roll out to everyone soon, but let us know when you see it!
