    You mean they approved an update to an App that's been out for years?

    What a shock!

    No it doesn't.

    It simply displays some of the results in the same manner as Google Now (using "cards").

    This update isn't particularly amazing IMO. The voice search has always been there.

    I have this App on my home screen and use it every day. It's certainly got some improvements, but nothing exceptional. The best part is that it's updated for the iPhone 5 screen.

    If you open safari and hit the mic button and say something it essentially works the same way, as long as default search engine is set to google.

    Am i missing something? I don't see Google Now. I just see voice search.

    Does it really have Google Now or are some people confusing the two?

    On mine google search does not do full screen it's still 4:3?

    The official google now video shows the voice feature on iOS. But it seem to not work at all on my iPhone 5. Am I missing something?

    You probably don't have the update yet.

    Check the App Store

    Google's voice recognition is far superior to Siri.

    Really?
    How? Now that SIRI is out of beta I've had excellent luck getting SIRI to respond to just about anything and quickly too.

    Yeah, this update doesn't have Google Now in it. It's just voice search. Google Now is the traffic, transit, sports scores, and all that stuff.

    Nah it is actually Google Voice Search. Google Now is not available for iOS. Google Now is not the voice search but the dynamic card system that bring you relevant info automatically from different sources (calendars, nearby locations, shipments, etc).
