Widget for Google Now mentioned on support page
A widget for Google Now is mentioned on the Google Support site as it lists the directions on how to install it on your home screen. We would imagine that the cards on the screen will contain the information that you have selected to receive every day, and you might be able to get a constant stream of real-time stock quotes, news headlines, traffic reports, etc.

A Google Now widget

Even though the Google Now widgets are prominently mentioned on the support page, how they are getting to your phone remains a mystery. It could be part of an OS update, or an update on Google Play. Going with the latter would make more sense since not all models have the OS build that might be updating. The widgets appear to show a summary of your Google Now cards on your home screen or lock screen.

Google Now is one of the main features found on Android 4.1 which is one of the reasons that many Android users can't wait for their next update.

I really trying to get all this hype about Google Now, but.... I'm not sure what exactly to do with it.

Seems Google has taken that page down. Guess we can take it as a confirmation :)
