In an update this evening for the Google Search for Android app, the folks in Mountain View included some goodies for the Jelly Bean-exclusive Google Now. Users can now see movie showtimes, receive important emergency alerts (storm warnings, etc.), and set their favorite sports teams from a list of 140 to get the latest scores thanks to the latest update. Furthermore, if you are a Korean user, you will be happy to learn that the oh-so creepy voice-search platform has received an update for your language. Go check out the new cards and report back! (Note: Some of them will need to be manually turned on through the settings menu.) [Google Play via +Android]

What’s in this version:

For Android 4.1+ (Jelly Bean) devices, this update to Google Now includes: * Movies – see movie showtimes and more * Public alerts – receive emergency messages such as storm warnings and earthquake alerts * Add favorite sports teams to follow in real time (from Settings) * Support for Korea
