Google Now widget coming to Android
A Google Now widget may be coming to future versions of Android, according to a new round of rumors. Details found on a support page (since removed) show a glimpse of things to come but with no additional documentation. It appears that the cards would automatically fill in with your preferences and will update regularly.
Sure, this could be something that comes to a specific, future release of Android however I suspect something else will happen first. I look for Google to include the widget in an update to the Google Search app that can be downloaded freely from Google Play. Building it into the Android experience makes sense for the long term but I would hope to see this given to all Jelly Bean users at 4.1 on up.
Regardless of how and when this widget becomes available, we’re super stoked. Not only does a home screen widget save users precious seconds and tapping, but the lock screen widget is as immediate as it gets.
