Among the new features, Google Now will automatically pull up your boarding pass (for United Airlines fliers only, for now), much like Apple's Passbook  for iOS 6 does. It will also provide information about your destination, including what the weather will be like, relevant websites as you're scouting for things to do, and a list of events happening nearby once you're there.
Google also added updates to Voice Search, which now sports a Shazam -like music ID service that responds when you ask, "What's this song?" and a RedLaser-style barcode scanning tool for shoppers that you can pull up by saying, "Scan this barcode." RedLaser -like barcode scanning service. You can also use your voice to post to your Google+ profile.
