Google Now could very well soon be integrated into Google’s Windows browser as well as the Chrome OS platform, as it was spotted in a new reference that was left behind by engineers in the most recent Chromium release. Of course, this particular bit of sleuthing was achieved by Chromium enthusiast François Beaufort, where it was noticed that a new flag was thrown into the mix that is known as the Chromium backend, where it enables users to turn on the option should they know the relevant Google Now server. Of course, being what it is at the moment, the feature has yet to be made public, and this means that Google Now cards (some call it notifications) will not be displayed – yet.
For the moment, Google Now will most probably be enabled in Chrome for Windows, without any sight of a Mac version to date, as well as in Chrome OS, although there is no concrete date as to when this might happen. Let us keep our fingers crossed that it will be sooner rather than later.
