Google Now, an Android-only app that aims to provide users with “the right information, at just the right time”, is coming to iOS, if a leaked video is to be believed. Google reportedly posted this promotional video to YouTube accidentally. It was quickly removed, but not before an Engadget tipster snatched a copy of it.
The video has since been pulled from YouTube and appears to feature the same voice actress as the original Now announcement (which you##Q##ll also find after the break for comparison). Supposedly, Now will be accessible in an upcoming iOS app update simply by swiping up from the main screen. Of course, there##Q##s always the chance that is an impressive fake or even a canceled project that##Q##s only being leaked now. We##Q##ve reached out to Google for comment, but even if the search giant remains silent, we##Q##re confident the truth will be known soon enough.
Google Now aggregates various bits of information that users may need throughout their day, including flight notifications, weather, traffic, reservations, packages, birthdays, transit information, stocks, movie times and more.
The original Google Now launch video is available on YouTube for comparison to the leaked one above.
