Briefly: Google updates Google Now, Chrome for Android
An update to the Google Search <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/282595==https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.googlequicksearchbox " rel='nofollow'>app</a> on Android has added package tracking to Google Now. New cards will show updates to shipped online orders from retailers in real-time, including an estimated arrival date, according <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/282596==http://www.droid-life.com/2013/04/03/google-search-update-introduces-real-time-package-tracking-faster-search-results-and-quick-card-settings/" rel='nofollow'>to</a> <em>Droid-Life</em>. Individual cards also have an info button, providing quick settings for the card's contents, while the overall settings menu for Google Now has been reorganized with each section having their own toggle options, and a separate "My Stuff" section for quicker alterations to sports teams and stock choices. <br />
