Google NowGoogle on Monday announced it is rolling out Google Now to the Chrome beta channel for Windows, Mac, and Chrome OS this week. The company says notifications will be available in English initially, with other languages supported “soon.” Google Now notifications will show up in Chrome’s notification center. To check them, click on the bell icon on your desktop (Mac and Windows) or the numbered box (Chrome OS).
