Google's Personal Search Assistant Google Now Coming To Desktops Via Chrome

Google’s intelligent personal assistant found on smartphones running Jelly Bean is getting ready to roll out to desktop users in the form of a Google Chrome notifications. The feature was discovered in the latest Chromium beta release after being dissected by developers. Those developers have discovered the top-level structure for showing Google Now cards in Chrome via Chrome notifications.

For those note familiar with Google Now it's a search assistant found within Jelly Bean. The service displays Cards or Snapshots of information that Google thinks you might need to know about. This could be as basic as offering directions to the restaurant you just looked up, or as sophisticated as poping up a reminder for an upcoming flight it found within an email on Gmail.

At present nothing official has been released on the possible implementation and nothing has been activated. But clearly the company has been working on porting its predictive search features over to the desktop for future possibilities.
