Google released today a major update to its iOS app which brings it near feature parity with the Android version of the app. The new update includes the ability to activate voice search handsfree, notifications for upcoming events, flights and public transit, set reminders and more.

Jump over the break for a full changelog…

Google Now gets even better with:

  • Notifications – Get notified when it’s time to go
  • Reminders – Never forget to put out the trash
  • New cards – See tickets, boarding passes, & more
  • Handsfree voice – Just say “OK Google” to search* ( * requires iPhone 4s or later )

Notifications deliver info before you open the app:

  • When to leave for your next appointment or event
  • If your flight is running late
  • How to catch the last train home

Ask Google to remember things for you. Just say:

  • “Remind me to buy coffee beans at Starbucks,” or
  • “Remind me to check out the fair this weekend”

and Google will remind you at the right time or place.

You can also ask to be reminded when your favorite:

  • Musicians release a new album
  • TV show has a new episode
  • Actors star in a new movie
  • Celebrities and politicians make headlines

Just search and press the “remind me” button.

New cards organize the info you care about:

  • Tickets for movies, concerts and events
  • Boarding passes for your flights
  • Reservation confirmations for car rentals
  • Warnings when your last train home leaves
  • Lists of upcoming local events

And finally, search is better than ever with:

  • A redesigned and simplified homepage
  • Gestures to zoom or throw away images
  • One touch sign in if you use other Google apps
  • Improved voiceover accessibility

Google is available as an universal app ( iPhone and iPad ) on the App Store
