Google Now is reminding Aussies to enrol to vote
Have you enrolled?
Google Now, the personal assistant developed by Google, has decided the most important thing Australians need to know right now is the enrolment deadline for the upcoming federal election.
The top Google Now card users are seeing is a reminder from Google to enrol to vote by 8pm Monday 23 May 2016.
Paired with the reminder is a link to the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) website, where you're able to check your enrolment status, change personal details and enrol to vote if you haven't already.
Google Now is designed to answer questions, perform actions and make recommendations by predicting what users may want to know based on their search habits. It then serves this information up in an easily digestible format.
The more you use Google Now the more it learns about you. That way you're less likely to miss those important meetings or have to wait for the weekend's footy scores and last-minute birthday reminders.
Earlier this month Google launched Spaces, which is meant to make it easier to find and share information between groups.
