If I google "make a meeting for 5pm tomorrow" on a desktop computer, I get this:

screen shot of search

But if I search that on my phone's Google app (the built in one) I get this:

screen shot from phone

(Sorry the image is so big it's just what it gave me when I held Home + Power. Also, the word "Make" is the first word there, you just can't see it because the search bar isn't big enough.)

Anyway, how do I get this on desktop?


That's Google Now, and it's currently available in the Google Chrome beta channel. You'll have to use Chrome as your browser if you want that feature.

  • I can't find the plugin, it just leads to a chrome download page (I am using chrome to access it, it's my default browser). Do you know where to find it? – Jon Sep 10 '13 at 15:10
  • It's not an extension; it's built in to the browser. You have to be on the beta channel. – ale Sep 10 '13 at 15:32
