Google Now support hits 70 more apps, including Spotify and Runkeeper

The Google Now service for Android devices is now offering support for 70 more third-party applications, including some of the Play Store’s big hitters.

Google has announced the new partnerships to accompany the 40 it announced back in January. Though the functionality remains closed to all but invited partners, Google has promised even more apps are coming soon.

Today’s updates see Spotify, YouTube and TuneIn integrated into Google Now, with each delivering curated playlists or stations based on listening habits and the time of day.

Breaking news from ABC News, Feedly and Circa can also be viewed within Google Now, while users can receive nudges and updates on their daily movement goals from the likes of Runkeeper, Jawbone and Adidas.

Google says the recipe of the day comes courtesy of a Card from AllRecipes, while OpenTable fans will be able to pay their restaurant bill from Google Now. Sticking with the food theme, Eat24 will now show reminders for forthcoming deliveries.
