As many of you know already Google rolled out a major update (3.1.8 ) to the Google Search App over the past day that includes a host of new cards including new topics, website updates and what to watch.  There's also Waze traffic data and more.  Non-Nexus 5 devices like the Nexus 7 get access to the Google Experience Launcher (GEL) that previously was exclusive to the Nexus 5.  Finally there's added functionality to Google's voice search commands including occasional follow up questions to the user to clarify searches.  Pretty neat!  You can read more about the update in our forums or at the following links.

This is the update that allows the Nexus 7 to have the Google Now integration the Nexus 5 has with its Google Experience Launcher.

I posted a guide for users on how to get the GE Launcher on our Nexus 7's here...
