Google Now adds cards from 70 third party apps

Google Now adds cards from 70 third party apps
Google sent out a release on Tuesday to announce that cards from an additional 70 third party apps will now be supported on the Android version of Google Now. An example from Google shows that if you reserve a Zipcar for the day, a Google Now card can remind you when and where you are expected to return the vehicle. Love music? Cards from Spotify, YouTube or TuneIn will recommend playlists based on your musical tastes (or lack of one).

New Google Now cards from ABC News, feedly or Circa keep you up to date and informed on the latest news, and cards from Eat24 tell you when your food delivery will be arriving. A daily card from Allrecipes gives you a daily recipe to whip up, and cards from Runkeeper, Jawbone, and Adidas will motivate you to meet your fitness goals. When you're eating dinner out, you can pay for the meal using OpenTable's Google Now card.

Adding the new cards to Google Now means you need to watch out for the latest update to the feature, which has already started to rollout in the Google App Store. If you have the app installed, go to the Play Store and check "My apps" to see if you have the updated version waiting for you. Even if you have the latest build of Google Now, it still might be a few weeks before the new cards start to appear on your device.

why do we need spotify crowding the google now screen , isn't google now about quick info ? seems like google wants you to use google now more than apps. it'll become super cluttered as a result.

Looks like this shouldn't impact me all that much, I have Waze and that's about it from the list provided.
