Google Now integrates features with the 2014 FIFA World Cup

There are going to be Copa and Android users will take advantage of it. Last week I published a list of apps to track the 2014 FIFA World Cup and one of the tips referred to Google's voice assistant. Now, the search giant has added even more features to the service and, best of all, it already offers Portuguese-speaking response to the feature.

With FIFA World Cup-related events, Google Now has already integrated Transit, warned when users should get off the bus or train, added connection reminders, and now sends real-time game information and allows them to be added. on your Google calendar, as well as receive cards with essential information about your team's games. Below you will find how to configure the service to count on these two features.

Real time search

Android users can now find match information by typing "world cup" in Google search or by using Google Now's voice features. Doing so will offer the date and calendar of upcoming games, along with the time starting matches based on location. In addition, it will also be possible to check the results of the matches and the classification of the selection that you follow in the Cup.

Once a match has started, a search for "world" or your team name will give you real-time results, team rosters and even big plays.

Not to miss a game, Google also offers a World Cup schedule which, once added to your regular schedule, integrates all World Cup events displayed in your local time zone. To do so, access your Google calendar from the web, then go to "other calendars" in the left sidebar, click the menu button, and add a calendar from the following URL:
