Google Now's new Reminders feature is pretty darn awesome, but reader Gmapper14 found a great, lesser-known feature: you can add reminders right from Google search results.You probably already know that certain searches will come up with "cards" on Google, like searching for a movie, a holiday, or other query. Well, if your search comes up with something associated with a date—like the release date of a movie—, you should now see a new option to "Remind Me on Google Now." Click this, and it'll add a reminder to your phone and tablet for you. Note that you need "Personal Results" turned on in order for this to work. Sadly, this doesn't work on the mobile version of Google Now yet, just the desktop version—but hopefully it comes to the mobile version soon.Google Search Works with Google Now | Hackerspace
