    How to set up home and work locations for Google Now traffic cards on Android phone?

    I am using Android Jellybean on my phone. It has an exciting feature called Google Now that automatically supplies information such as weather, traffic, etc. But the home and work locations have not been set correctly on my phone. It should be set for the Google Now to work. How can I do this on my device?

    For Google Now to work properly, you must locate the home and work addresses on the Google Maps. First of all, make sure that Google Maps app is installed on your device. Then go to the Maps app. Tap on top of the Maps to list down the features. Choose ‘Location History’ from the list. On viewing your location History, tap on the menu button. There you will be able to view the options, ‘Change home location’ and Change work location’. You should tap on each location to set and save them. This permits Google Now to identify your home and work locations. Now it can start pulling up data that are related to these areas. This will allow the ‘Travel Time’ card to start showing up in the Google Now area. You can change the work and home locations any time.
