The Google Now notification application for Android devices has added a "remind me" button that responds to searches of music, movie or TV topics. Consumers who click on the button could, for example, be notified when a recording artist has a new album for sale, possibly on Google Play. The notifications go beyond new pop content to information on public transit, football scores and telling mobile users what music is playing on their networked smart TVs, for example. One feature helps ride-sharers track the progress of those in their Google+ network.
