Just noticed this "time to home" statement in my notifications. When/how/why did this appear? I'm not upset, it's actually quite neat. I'm just wondering what enabled it.

I know this has been around for a little while. I don't remember when though. How did you get the NBA scores and all that?

When I scroll from the top, I do not see the weather.

It's called Frequent Locations: Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services > Frequent Locations

Google Now has provided this information and much more for a long time. One can opt out if you don't want the convenience, or one can specify the various kinds of real time information like sports scores and more.

Thanks Google!

This feature has never worked for me despite having the same schedule every day. Driving ime to next appointment does work, however.

I remember when I saw this last year it was interesting.

Then I thought it was odd that on the weekends it said it would take 10 minutes to get to this location...the grocery store that I'd hit around the same time. that was funny as I guess I did the grocery store trip on a frequent basis.

I've since removed the feature since i'd want to limit the data/location services.

Can you please tell me all the other ways that Google is vastly superior since we are on an Apple forum? You really helped answer my question and added useful information to this conversation. Oh wait, no you didn't.

P.S. I have used Google Now and their stupid "cards". It sucks.

Ouch - harsh (considering your originating post)

As already stated, this is not a new feature, it is the result of not only frequent locations being enabled, but having Traffic Conditions enabled on Lockscreen and having traffic enabled in Apple Maps.
