Google Now for iOS allegedly demoed in 'leaked' promotional videoA video showing off an alleged Google Now app built for iOS was supposedly leaked to YouTube on Tuesday, with the promotional-style clip touting the service's major features including real time data acquisition and predictive actions.
Spotted by Engadget, the low-resolution promo, which teased Google Now for iPhone and iPad, was reportedly posted to YouTube earlier today, only to be pulled minutes later.
In the short clip, the narrator describes a number of predictive features offered by the service which first launched on Android handsets in 2012, including real time navigation rerouting, air travel updates and sports scores.
It should be noted that the authenticity of the video has not been confirmed, though the overall style and narration fit with Google's previous ads touting the Google Now for Android product.
