A newly updated version of the Google Search app for Android sees the introduction of two new Google Now cards. Those of you with Jelly Bean versions of Android will be able to take advantage of features such as TV Cards and Google Offers.

  • TV Cards: If you have an internet-connected TV, Google Now can help unlock more information about what you’re watching. Just connect your Android device to the same network that your TV is on and tap “Listen for a TV show” in Google Now. We will show you information, like where you’ve seen an actor in the cast before, or more information about the people mentioned in the show.
  • Google Offers: Now you can get reminders for your saved offers when you’re near the store — right when you need it. Google Now will pull up the offer so you can use it quickly and easily.

As is the case with other Google Now features you simply need to be running at least Android 4.1 to take advantage of the notifications.
