If you’re a hardcore Google Now user, we have some good news for you. It seems that the the digital assistant could soon integrate third-party services, alongside voice notifications. And apparently, not just Android users have a reason to be happy, as this could be as well implemented into the Google Search app for iOS.
Wait, what’s that?
According to Digital Trends, the guys from Android Police discovered a few tips hidden into Google Now’s code. To be more specific, a ‘3rd Party Welcome’ section and icons for health, music or eating apps, meaning that we could soon hear about the search giant teaming with a few partners, in order to provide even more features for Google Now. Still, the source’s recommendation is to take everything with a pinch of salt, as nothing was confirmed yet.
As for the voice notifications, there are way higher chances to see this feature soon, since Android users are already familiar with using voice commands on their smartphones. Still, if it’s indeed going to be integrated in Google Now, notifications will be rear as soon as they arrive, without the need of actually interacting with your phone. Well, this would be really great for drivers, for example.
