Google Now is available to Chrome Canary for use. Chrome Canary is alpha or beta version of Chrome from Google. It’s not suggested for use in daily basis because it’s not stable and not recommended for the regular user expect developers. But if you want to give it a try you can download it from here. Everyone was expected Google now on desktop chrome from earlier last year. But it is now available to only experimental version of Chrome. And after sometime may be it will be available to regular chrome browser too. But according to Google you may have to wait long to go it live on regular Chrome. This news was reported by Google System Blog. And now Google has a complete help page for how to use Google Now cards in Chrome.
So what you need to do to get Google Now on your Desktop Chrome?
Just Follow the steps
- First thing I want to mention clearly is that Google Now is available for Chrome Canary not for regular Chrome. So if you want to use it, you need to download Chrome Canary from here.
- Or if you already have Chrome Canary on your desktop, check if it is already up to date to 34.0.1788.
- Then go to chrome://flags/#enable-google-now
- Here switch to “Enabled” from “Default”
- Then go to chrome://flags/#enable-rich-notification
- Here also switch to “Enabled” from “Default”
- and re-launch the browser, that’s it.
As I have told you that Google mentioned about it on its help page. From the Google Support page for this new feature.
“If you use Google Now on your mobile device, you can see certain Now cards on your desktop computer if you’re signed into Chrome, including weather, sports scores, commute traffic, and event reminders cards,” Google said in a help page post. “Google Now on Chrome shows a subset of the Now cards you see on your mobile device.”
You need to sigh in with same Google id on your chrome browser that you have signed in on your smartphone.
