Traveling during the holidays sure can be a hassle. From packing and getting to the airport on time, to dealing with gate changes and delays. Fortunately, with the recent update to Google Now on the MOTOROLA ATRIX™ HD, you’ll be ready to go, with cards featuring boarding information, weather at your destination and more. Its just one of the amazing new features you will find in the Android™ 4.1 Jelly Bean update now available for multiple Motorola devices.
If you’re flying United Airlines, Google Now can pull up a card with your boarding pass and information on your departure time as well as departure gate. And just so you don’t end up arriving to the airport for a delayed flight, you’ll see the flight status on the card as well. You’ll even get a prompt to navigate to the airport from wherever you are at, with a traffic report that gives you an estimate of when you should leave. About the only thing Google Now won’t do for you is give an estimate of how long the line is at airport security.
Before you set off for the airport though, you probably want some help in wondering what to pack. Google Now provides the weather for your upcoming destination so you know whether to bring a rain coat, winter coat or flip flops and shorts. All of this comes from pulling flight details directly from your Gmail account. Depending on what permissions you give to the app, you can get cards with restaurant and hotel reservations, translation help, currency conversions and even local attraction recommendations.
Google Now provides so much detail that you can leave the guide books at home and ditch the tour guide in that exotic locale. So whether you’re traveling over the holidays or planning for that next getaway, make sure to take your MOTOROLA ATRIX™ HD with you to enjoy all the benefits of Google Now on the go.
