Google has started rolling out an update for its Search app in Google Play, which brings a number of changes to Google Now. Like other Google app updates, it is also being released in phases and will reach your Android device in the next few days.

Coming to the changes, the update brings tweaked Google Now settings, which allow the users to get the options related to cards and Google Now at one place. The users will now find the new Now cards settings under the Google Search settings or under Search & Now in Google Settings app.

Google has also added a new search language option to Search settings to choose in which language you want to see the search results interface. Other changes include improved Stocks card, which finally shows the name of the companies you are tracking rather than just showing their symbols. In addition, the company has tweaked the Google Now Launcher (GNL) layout to match with the look of GNL bundled with Nexus devices running Android 5.0 Lollipop.

Other changes:

  • Weather source in Weather info card
  • UI tweaks
  • Bug-fixes
