WASHINGTON — Google Now has added 70 more third-party partners to its Google Now cards.
According to TechCrunch, Google Now started pulling details from third-party Android apps from 40 third-party partners earlier this year. With 70 more partners added, brings the total pool of Now partners up to 110.
Google will now display info from 70 more inside the card-based repository.
Some partners from the new group include Spotify, which can now offer up playlists based on users recent listening trends and other contextual info, such as time of day; ABC News and Circa for breaking news; delivery reminders for food ordering service Eat24; and fitness progress reminders from apps like Runkeeper. OpenTable will even let users pay their restaurant bill directly from Now.
The latest version of the official Google app is required to run the cards from these new partners and that users should have the updated versions of each of the respective partner apps.
