Google (GOOG) on Wednesday updated its Android Search app with some extra goodies for Google Now. The new version adds support for movie theaters, public alerts, enhanced sports information and it now reorganizes Korean. Google Now can be set to display a card that includes movie showtimes based on how a user searches or even if the smartphone is near a theater. The new public alerts card will be displayed during emergencies, and will include information and warnings regarding storms, earthquakes and more. Google previously would supply sports information based on earlier searches, however with the enhanced sports card, users can now manually input their favorite teams to receive scores and updates. The latest version of Google Now is included in the Google Search app, which is available now on the Play Store for users running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
