Google Looking To Add Google Now Integration For Chrome Desktop Browser, Wants To Know You Even Better Than Before


Those of us who have a Jelly Bean-powered device probably utilize Google Now on a daily basis, but now it appears that we may be seeing the super cool virtual assistant tool integrated with Google’s Chrome browser. Thanks to some keen eyes out there, it is now known that the Chromium web browser for Windows has been updated to include a new specialized notification center. As seen in the screenshot above, the notification center is fully customizable, allowing for users to create a custom notification within the Chrome browser. What’s even more noteworthy is the fact that the screenshot clearly indicates a “clear all” function, giving the clear indication that users will be able to have multiple notifications displayed in the browser.

As it stands now– it appears that Google Now wants to not only get to know your daily phone habits, but it also wants to know a little bit more about you when it comes to your desktop computer as well. There’s no word on when we’ll see this technology implemented, but we’re willing to bet that we’ll see something live soon… very soon.

    Still can’t find any joy with Google Now. It still thinks the best way to work south is via another city in the north for some time now. The only thing it gets right is weather and almost never displays anything of interest. Can’t see how as a Jelly Bean user I use it every day, as it’s almost always wrong. Let’s hope browser integration works better for me.
