A new feature in Android 4.1 Jelly Bean called Google Now builds on Google’s new Knowledge Graph search, which recognizes the things, people and places you’re searching for, and pulls up a card full of informative answers. The voice search also worked quickly and more reliably than Apple’s Siri in the demo, coming back with concise, accurate answers with images and additional information on the screen.
