Google Now offers a lot of amazing features and tricks but this might be one of the coolest we’ve ever seen. Reddit user Professa91 recently asked Google Now to tell him about what he was watching on TV while Jeopardy happened to be on. Not only did Google Now correctly identify that he was watching Jeopardy just by listening to audio of the show but it also was able to hear answers for individual questions and show him relevant information about each one.

As you can seem in the screenshot above posted on the user’s Imgur account, Google Now not only gave the them information on Jeopardy but on famous renaissance poet Petrarch, who happened to be one of the answers on a recent show.

Blogger Cochinoman explains that Google doesn’t just do this for Jeopardy either — a while back while watching the classic ’80s comedy Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, they found that Google Now not only identified the title of the film but even identified a Wayne Newton tune being sung in the movie and offered information about Newton as well.

While you may not love the idea of turning on your phone’s mic and having Google’s algorithms listening to what’s going on in your living room, you have to admit that this ability to deliver quick information is incredibly impressive.
