Google Now on its Way to Chrome for Windows and Chrome OS

We love Google Now notifications on Android — it helps deliver the latest traffic information, sports scores, weather conditions and even alerts of our FedEx package shipments — and now it’s about to make its debut on the desktop.

Chromium Code Reviews recently noticed that Google has implemented the code to activate Google Now inside the Chrome Web browser on Windows and on Google’s own Chrome OS computers. That means you’ll be able to get the same relevant information wherever you are, whether it’s while you’re surfing the web at work on your computer or on the go on your Android smartphone.

It’s unclear when the feature will be active, it appears to be dormant in developer code right now, but we imagine it will be turned on by default in the next Chrome update. We can’t wait.
