Google Now Will Make Sure You Never Miss the Last Train Again

Missing the last ride home is one of the most profound bummers you can experience. Thanks to Google, getting left behind could become a thing of the past. And that's just one of the new tricks tucked into the Google Now update that should be hitting your phone imminently.

Google Now's public transportation card will now tell you when the last bus or train is leaving the station. Additionally, the personal assistant will surface concert tickets and car rental reservations, which cuts down on the amount of time you have to spend fiddling with your phone looking for information.

Google's also jumping on to the second screen bandwagon with a new Google Now card that will display information about what you are watching on TV. How will it know what you are watching on TV? Well if you're using a smart TV--presumably a Google TV or any other system that lets you log in with Google Now-the devices can talk to each other. Alternatively, you can instruct your phone to listen to your TV for a few seconds like Shazam for smartphones. [Google+]
