Google Now is a tool that many of us rely on every day to display traffic info, help us keep track of flights, learn about sports scores and more. And thanks to a new feature, it looks like we’re going to start relying on it even more.
Google has announced that third-party apps can now display Google Now cards. There are currently 40 different apps that can display cards, including major apps like Pandora, Shazam, Lyft, Waze, and eBay. The apps can display info like music recommendations, your auction end times, traffic alerts, and even the ability to remotely start your vehicle.
Google says that these new third-party cards will roll out to users over the coming weeks and that more cards will be added in the future. There are already a number of awesome apps and cards that are launching with this third-party Google Now integration, and it’ll be interesting to see how developers use the feature going forward.
