Google Now is probably going to migrate to Chrome, newly discovered code suggests. The implementation on desktops seems like a natural step for the excellent service, and makes it more accessible to those who are currently using the system.
The code, which was recently discovered on the Chromium project code site, hints that the skeleton for Google Now notifications are being worked on for the popular browser. So for weather, traffic reports, birthday alerts, etc., your browser will keep you up-to-date with everything that’s going on. Personally, I’d love to see automatic traffic reports every evening before driving home.
The search giant in a statement to CNET hinted that it’s experimenting with new features in Chrome, but said it doesn’t have anything to announce. If the building blocks are being put into place, we’d expect something soon after the new year arrives.
Google Now has quickly become a stand-out feature on Android, and making it available to a wider audience only seems logical. Let’s hope everything gets ironed out, and something more official comes to the company’s browser soon.
