Here’s 66 Google Now Commands That You May or May Not Known About

| March 25, 2013 | 14 Replies


One of the features we use on Android to brag about how great Android is to our friends is Google Now. Which is a pretty big feature as well as a cool one. Google Now was introduced back at Google I/O 2012 with Android 4.1 – Jelly Bean, and is available on every phone running Android 4.1 or higher. Now there are two parts to Google Now. There’s the screen that shows you cards, like the one below, then there’s the search where you can type in your search or say what you want to search for. In that screen there are plenty of commands you can use to show off how great Android really is.

    The Wifi and Silent mode commands do not work. (Even though I’d like them to)

    • Michael Martin

      yea, i was going to say……..way to put salt on the wound……..made me think i missed that in a recent update only to test it and be reminded :(

  • NetApex

    I have recently been using the (team name) vs (team name) to check NBA action. (Not surprisingly, it is fantastic) “Lakers vs Warriors” It tells the most recent score, date played and upcoming game if there is one.

    There is also ‘Google market cap’ and ‘Google ticker name’

  • Romeo Graham

    “Who killed Laura Palmer?” works as well.

  • Zachary Smorto

    Half of these are just questions you can simply talk to any google search bar. The good commands for the device aren’t supported for most people yet.

  • Wustah Boy

    Surprised to see “Wooster/Worcester” in there! 508 represent!
    You guys based close to here?

  • fordcom

    Where Am I now…?

    Being a chemistry student I’ve used it several times to ask about the properties of certain chemicals. You can ask the melting point of napthalene. Boiling point of iodine, etc. It’s useful in a pinch particularly since typing with latex gloves on isn’t much fun.

  • MrWar

    Alright which neckbeard wrote this

  • R. J. McLaughlin

    Turn off WiFi doesn’t work. Neither does asking it to go silent mode. Both give the error message: “Device control not supported” on my new Nexus 4.

  • Lu Bre

    Please note: non-english languages are screwed out.
