Google Now Gets Third Party Apps Support

News - United States


Google never stops improving its services and keeps introducing interesting features in its apps. The recently announced Google Now gets third party apps support. The third party support is only limited to Android-based users currently, but within the next few weeks it will roll out to everyone.  Google has plans to work with other partners in future. It means the number of providers will expand in future. The search giant explained in a blog post.
 



"Starting today, the Google app on Android can help you keep up with all the good stuff in 40 different apps at a glance - it'll bring you Now cards to help you out with your day-to-day life, giving you information that's helpful to you, right when you need it,"
 

The search giant is teaming up with 40 developers, including Pandora, Lyft, TripAdvisor, eBay and RunKeeper, in order to bring third-party apps support within Google Now. For instance, you can catch up on news of the day with cards from the Guardian. But the notification will only appear if you have both the Google app and the relevant third party app installed.  
 

"In the morning, catch up on news of the day with cards from The Guardian," the search giant explained in a blog post. "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."
 

It is very important to mention that last week Microsoft announced that with the launch of Windows 10, Cortana would be making a move to the desktop.
