Apparently this has been around for a while, but I just discovered it. When you search for a TV show on Google, there’s a “Remind Me” button. Click it, and you’ll get notifications from Google Now prior to the show.
Here’s some screen shots, both on a Google Search and the Google Now reminder.
The reminder is not available for all shows. For example, when I search for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the Remind Me button doesn’t show.
It’s also not available in all mobile browsers. I get a “Remind Me” button in Safari on my iPad, in Chrome (not surprisingly) on my Nexus 7, but not in Dolphin Browser on either of my devices. I find it interesting that not all browsers are created equal here.
I also saw some discussion in a Lifehacker post about the feature that it’s only available in hte U.S. That was an older post (from August), and it’s possible that’s changed. Have any readers from other countries noticed one way or the other?
Anyway, it’s not a huge Google Now feature, but it’s certainly handy.
