Google Now may soon start talking back to you thanks to voice notifications and third-party app support, according to some unused code found in the latest updates for both Android and iOS. It also looks like Google is looking for a way to better integrate the Chrome browser with Android as well.
Android Police produced a tear down of the Google Now APK file to find hints at upcoming functionality. Voice notifications will automatically read out your notifications as they arrive, which could be useful while your driving.
The other big feature that might be coming to Google’s digital assistant is third-party app support. The latest code includes a ‘3rd-Party Welcome’ feature, along with some new icons for health, music, good among others. Google may only open up third-party Google Now integration to select developers to start off with.
There is no guarantee that these features will be fully integrated as this information was gathered from unused code. However, this does prove that Google is looking at ways to expand Google Now and make it more useful.
