Tomorrow is the international day without a smartphone, which we are after today, but it seems that Chrome developers are wanting users to put their smartphones aside and use their desktop more. Google Now has arrived for Chrome beta And that means that the next time you finish writing an email using your PC or laptop, Google Now may suggest that you leave the office a little early to avoid an old acquaintance called "heavy traffic" on the way. From home.
Since launching its personal assistant, Google has been pushing the software to all platforms, including Glass. The Play Store already uses Now's card system, the Nexus 5 UI comes full of service references and now Chrome's turn to the wheel.

If you already use Google Now on your Android, you know that the feature can be a hand in hand, especially when you're signed in to the browser and app with the same account.
