Google Now cards are now available offline

Google now cards are a handy tool that provide personalised data such as meeting times, location information, the forecast, sports scores and much more – which is why it’s even more handy that it can now operate offline.

Even if you’re on the train or just in the middle of no-where, Google Now cards will still let you view all of your informational cards when the internet is out.

"Next time you’re on the subway and want to check on your day’s appointments with Google Now, you won’t have to worry about lack of cell service. Starting today your Google Now cards stay loaded, even when you lose service in the subway… or your favorite underground bar!" announced Google in a Google+ post.

You will need to update the Google Search App for Android in order to get offline support.

The newly updated Android Search app also includes a new Now card that will show the approximate location of your vehicle to help you remember where you parked.

Google Now is a two-year-old personal assistant developed by Google that responds to voice and text queries and serves up relevant information based on your repeated user habits.

You can access Google Now in Google's Search apps for Android and iOS and in the Google Chrome browser.
