There are a lot of features coming to Google Now, and quite a bit of it has been caught by the code hounds over at Android Police. One of the features that they caught back in March
was that Google wanted to remind you when bills were due. Back in May, the feature started testing
, but never went into a full roll out. It seems that roll out may have started now, though.
It is unclear if this is an aggressive rollout, or just an expansion of the testing, but there have been more and more reports since the beginning of September of users getting the bill reminder notifications as part of their Google Now feed. We don't have any bill reminder emails in our Gmail inbox, so we're not seeing the card, but a quick Twitter search shows that others have been reporting seeing it.
If the feature has been turned on for your account, it is a pretty simple trick. If you have an email in your Gmail inbox that is telling you about a bill that is due soon, Google will know about it, and will drop that reminder in your Google Now feed. Anyone else out there seeing the new card?
