Google Search Updated for Jelly Bean Devices
Google today announced a small update to the Google Search application, available to devices running either Android 4.1 or 4.2 Jelly Bean. The application is now even more proactive about pulling in details related to user travel in Google Now, such as the weather at a traveler's destination or their boarding pass when they arrive at the airport. The app is more location aware, and will display local events when travelers arrive at new destinations. Last, the app has new voice powers, and will respond to voice requests for scanning barcodes, identifying songs, and composing or sharing posts to Google+. Google Search is a free update for devices running Jelly Bean.
