Google Search LogoGoogle has revealed details about a new version of the Google Search app for Android devices.

The latest rendition of Search makes use of Material Design and adds new Now cards for keeping track of reminders, travel, sports scores, and your commute. Google Now will recognize the “OK, Google” voice prompt within third-party applications. It can also be used to open and search through those third-party apps. Google has made it possible for the Nexus 6 and Galaxy Note 4 smartphones to enable the “OK, Google” prompt even when the device is locked and asleep (similar to the Motorola Moto X).

Last, Google added a fun feature that allows users to flip a virtual coin when they need help choosing between two selections. Google Search is free to download from the Play Store.
