Google is said to have already added a "skeleton" for Google Now to Chrome, but the web giant is yet to officially announce its plans for a browser-based version of the service.

Debuting with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean over the summer, Google Now serves users with weather reports, trip departure reminders, birthday alerts, restaurant reviews and more, based on their current location.

Such a move would see Google Now go multi-platform, with Chrome available on Windows, OS X and iOS devices, giving it an advantage over its single-system rival Apple's Siri.

Google is yet to officially confirm plans to integrate Google Now into Chrome but did acknowledge that it is "always experimenting with new features in Chrome".
