The update just arrived on the Play Store and those using Android 4.1 Jelly Bean or higher will benefit the most from these new changes. Google has added real-time package tracking from select carriers, so now when it notices a tracking number in Gmail you’ll get live tracking too. Awesome right?

Google’s also added both a quick feedback, as well as a quick settings button right on each card. This way you can instantly hit the quick settings button to make changes, add a favorite sports team to the Sports card, update your location setting and more all with ease. Try it yourself by hitting the new (i) button on each card.

It also appears that search on mobile just got quicker too. Google states that search results will be faster, although that’s pretty hard to actually test. Not to mention it was already amazingly fast to begin with. Google has continued to update search and Now with awesome features and we can’t wait to see what they add next. Get it right now from the link below.
