Google has upgraded the Google Now by adding seven new types of Google Now card notifications. One of the most interesting features is the integration of Now with Google+ Locations that will let employees see when another employee gets to work, leave from work, reach home and so forth. The application will also notify when your kids leave or get to school.
Google's Joe LePenna said on Google+ :
“Huge news today in Google+ Locations! When someone shares their pinpoint location with you, Google Now will notify you when they're on their commute to or from work or home! This is a great way to coordinate with teammates at the office or family at home.
This is one of the many integrations we're bringing to Google using G+ Locations as a starting point. We hope you love it and are looking forward to bring Location Sharing out of just one app and into many more.
The feature will work only when the person on the other end has allowed you to see his locations. The feature is called community sharing and it comes with several preferences & settings”.
