Google Now Becomes a More Robust Platform with 70 New Partner Apps



(ZDNet) – Back in January, Google announced 40 partner apps that work with Google Now, those contextual cards with tidbits of useful information. Now, the company is adding more breadth to Google Now with news of 70 additional partners.

Here are just a handful of the new third-party app integrations Google announced on Tuesday through its official Search blog:

  • Get breaking news about the aftermath of the Nepal earthquake from ABC News, Circa, or Feedly
  • Know when your pad thai is about to arrive with reminders from Eat24 that the food you ordered will soon be on your doorstep, or get inspired with the recipe of the day from Allrecipes
  • Keep your fitness goals front and center with gentle nudges from Runkeeper, Jawbone, or Adidas
  • And if you’re out to dinner, simply tap on a Now card to pay your bill with OpenTable

I’ve long been a fan of Google Now because of the way the service surfaces useful information at the time you need it the most. If there’s heavy traffic between you and your next meeting or your ride home from work, Google Now calculates the delay and reminds you to leave that much earlier, for example, with a popup message on your phone.
