From this month onwards for 30 days, Muslim all around the world will be fasting for the holy month of Ramadan.
To mark the occasion, Google has launched the My Ramadan Companion service on Google Now. The service will provide information pertaining to the festival, as well as exact times for sunrise and sunset, so that Muslims may know when exactly they can break fast and what time is ‘sahur’ – the morning meal that is taken before the fasting cycle begins anew. The Google Now site will also provide users with other content pertaining to the festival, such as apps that will alert you to wake up to Sahur, or YouTube content ranging from drama series and comedy sketches.
The site is already live, allowing those who are interested in using the free service from Google to do so for the 30-day period of Ramadan.
