Android fans have long sung the praises of Google Now, which stands as one of the platform’s most useful features. On Friday Google announced that it would take its popular mobile assistant to the next level by letting more than thirty different third-party apps generate Google Now cards.
So what will this look like in practice? We’ll let Google give you some examples.
“In the morning, catch up on news of the day with cards from The Guardian,” the company explains. “On your commute, Pandora can give you recommendations for music to play, based on what you like, or you can be reminded to complete your daily French lesson on Duolingo. During your downtime, you can take care of the groceries, with a card from Instacart reminding you to stock up on the things you often order. If you’re planning a trip and looked up places to stay on your Airbnb app but couldn’t make up your mind, you’ll see Now cards from Airbnb for the location and dates you’ve researched. And when you land at an airport, you’ll see a card to order a Lyft.”
