general  Google Now Shows Up in Chrome Experimental Flags List

We already know that Google Now is coming to Chrome and Chrome OS. Code changes started showing up couple of months ago and then we saw the notifications center of Chrome OS and Chrome getting a redesign. Today there is one more thing to add to that list.

Google Now is now part of chrome://flags page which lists all the experimental features of Chrome and Chrome OS for testing. It has been added as a built in extension.

This is available in the latest Chromium builds.

We can enable the flag from chrome://flags but it is not functional yet because the Google Now URL is still a secret, says François Beaufort.
