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.
