One quick glance at Google Now and you have pretty much all the important information that you are looking for. Right from the weather at your place, to tracking your courier status, to the traffic condition everything is right there on Google Now. With most of the Nexus and Google Play devices now supporting the Google Now Launcher, Google Now is very much at the heart of the modern high end flagship phones.
The best thing about Google Now is its incremental updates. Google has continuously added new features to it, right from setting reminders to the recent addition of following your favorite IPL cricket team scores. With the FIFA World Cup 2014 set to start in two days, Google has added the ability to follow the country you will be rooting for at the World Cup using Google Now. Till now, it was possible to follow your favorite club side as far as football coverage on Google Now was concerned, but with the biggest carnival of football around the corner, this move makes sense.
So, how can you follow the team or teams that you support using Google Now? Just follow the steps below:
Make sure you have Google Now enabled on your Android smartphone. If not, download have the latest version of Google Search on your phone and open the application to enroll into Google Now.
Once you have Google Now enabled, go to Google Now and click on the magic wand that appears at the bottom of your Google Now.
Now select the first option that says ‘sports’ so you can add in the team that you wish to follow. You will see the option of ‘Add a Team’ at the bottom where you can add the nation you will be rooting for. As you can see, we have added the Netherlands here.
That is it, now sit back and relax. Google Now will notify you when your team is about to play next. The best thing about it is, that Google Now tells about the match timing in your local time instead of forcing you to do time conversions. As the games are happening live and your team is playing, the scores will be updated within the app. You can add as many teams as you wish to, and make sure you have the scores on your fingertips always.
