google now bill

There’s no denying that Google Now is a powerful tool for Android users but it does have its limits. Users have little choice because they’re locked into Google’s own services and are unable to get more work done able with Now when they’re driving or are in a position where staring at the phone is a bit hard. It looks like Google is working on improving these aspects of Now, so reveals the teardown of the search app on Android.

AndroidPolice took the app apart to see if they could find any hints of how Google Now will be improved in the days to come. It was discovered that Google is currently toying around with a couple of new ideas which would certainly improve the service.

Some preliminary code was discovered which revealed that support for spoken notifications may be added at some point. This would mean that users could get Google Now to speak traffic warnings out loud and not have to stare at the screen, and potentially get distracted when they’re on the road.

It was also discovered that third-party services may be allowed to tap into Now. This would allow users to share stuff to networks like Twitter and Facebook, as well as third-party applications to display their own cards in Now.

Discovering code like this is nothing new and doesn’t necessarily mean that these features would be added at some point. The possibility exists but nothing can be said for sure at this point in time.
