HOUSTON -- Google’s homepage may soon become your personal assistant – in the form of its popular Android app called “Google Now.”

Google Now is a free app that says it delivers you information at “just the right time.” For instance, the app knows when you leave work, and it will automatically show you any traffic or weather conditions you need to know about. If you’re going to the airport, it will show your boarding pass as soon as you get there.

Hidden code on Google’s website shows the company is possibly working on putting some of the Google Now functionality on its homepage. If you’re a Gmail user, it’ll likely use your e-mail and scheduler as a way to keep you organized.

Of course, Google hasn’t confirmed this. If you’re interested in “Google Now,” the link is below.
