Set up location-based reminders

As the name itself suggests, you can use Google Now to set up location reminders so that you'll never miss out on specific things you intend to do at specific locations. To do this, press the microphone icon on the search bar and ask Google to remind you of something when you are at a particular place. It's as simple as that.

Launch apps directly from Google Now

Instead of opening the apps from the app drawer (if you've one) or searching for that particular app on your home-screens just say "Open WhatsApp" or "Open Facebook" or "Open any other app name" you intend to launch and boom, the app opens up. This features can come in quite handy for those who load a good amount of apps on their smartphones.

Make it your travel manager

Google Now can be very useful for those who travel very frequently. If you use Google's Calendar app, the digital assistant will send notifications and alert you about the same in the form of cards.

What's more interesting is the fact that it sends notifications taking into consideration the time aspects as well. Meaning, in case you've to attend a party at 7:00 PM in the evening, it notifies you about when you should start from your current location to reach the destination on time.
