Google Now may soon be headed to PCs

As we’ve noted before, Google’s (GOOG) new voice-enabled personal assistant Google Now is one of the coolest new features on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and it’s received a lot of acclaim from around the tech world. And now, per Engadget, it looks like anyone with a desktop computer will soon be able to enjoy Google’s Siri killer right from within the Chrome web browser.

Some software developers have started a new Chromium project dedicated to showing “Google Now notifications in Chrome” and “creating a skeleton for Google Now for Chrome implementation.” While we have no idea how far along this project is right now, it’s certainly a very welcome development since Jelly Bean is still available on less than 10% of all Android devices and most people won’t have access to Google Now on their smartphones for the foreseeable future.
