Google mobile search now includes Google Now styled cards for certain information
Google has announced an update to its mobile search feature for smartphones and tablets. Now, certain information will be presented in what Google calls a "richer" way and answers will be interactive. The new way that information is presented resembles the cards used on Google Now. When you ask for information like flight times, currency conversion, unit measurement comparisons, local time, financial records, sunrise times and dates of holidays, you will immediately notice the new format.

One of the major advantages to using the new format is the way that responses become interactive. For example, if you're converting 10 meters to miles and you want to see how many miles in 14 meters, simply tap on the "card" and the full unit converter will appear.

Originally, the new look will be found on searches done on smartphones and tablets in English, but will soon rollout to the desktop version of Google.com and will also be launched in internationally.

I definitely like the simple look of the cards to get you the info you need without having to open any links. Keep it up Google.

I just put goog now on my Sg3 and it's for me what is the main reason Ilike jelly bean. I love it. Speech recognition offline and butter improvements are up there to but I as far as usability my Sgt3 is fast already and Google now is used almost every time I pick my phone up. Adding a little bit of that into. Regular search is gonna be I think so usefully especially when more featurns are added. It's defntly a new way to search in a way and I hope Google now incorporates more into the desktop and gets better
