Google Now is finally available for iOS users for both the iPhone and iPad at Apple’s App Store.
Google Now, a service that Android users have enjoyed for a year, just became available on iOS devices in the form of an update to the Google Search app, confirming those leaked videos we saw a few weeks ago.
It won’t have integration with notifications or alerts at launch — it may come in a future update, but the company wasn’t willing to divulge its future plans — so you’ll need to enter the app and swipe up to refresh your list of cards.
The iOS version won’t have every type of card that you’ll find on Android, either: boarding passes, activity summary, events, concerts, Fandango and Zillow aren’t included this go-round.
Improvements and additional features will likely trickle in over time, but it’s certainly better than nothing for iOS fans who’ve looked at Jelly Bean users with a slightly jealous eye.
To use Google Now on your iPhone or iPad, get the Google Search app from the App Store and sign into your Google account.
