google now cardsThe Google Now Cards feature on Android is pretty useful. It has the ability to remind you of things like upcoming flights, track packages, show you information it thinks you might be interested in based on previous searches, currency exchange rates and foreign language phrases while you’re overseas, and more.

However if there is one thing that it lacks, it is that it is missing support from third-party apps. Now as useful as the contextual information might be, we’re sure many would think it’s a lot more useful if third-party app information could be consolidated there too, right? The good news is that Google has heard you and has since updated Google Now to include support for third-party apps.

According to Google, ”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.” Google also mentions apps/services such as Lyft, Airbnb, Pandora, Duolingo, and more as some of the apps that will be supported out the door.

Google also plans to add more cards and expand the feature over time, so this is something worth looking forward to. The update should be available and is expected to roll out over the next few weeks.
