Gett is the world’s leading on-demand Black Taxi app that lets you instantly book a ride with your mobile phone. The company has taxis across three continents in 30 cities including New York, London, Tel Aviv and Moscow. In August 2014, Gett announced the closing of a $150 million funding round.
Google Now cards aim to provide helpful assistance throughout your day, in the form of personal answers and helpful voice actions. Now cards give you useful, relevant information and updates at suitable times which correlate to your lifestyle and schedule. This could be anything from reminding you about your shopping list, giving you your flight status or booking your taxi ride.
Google Now offers third parties the ability to integrate with Google to fulfil more of its users’ needs, with Gett being selected as one of the latest partners for this feature. Google are making Now cards even more useful by integrating with new partners across a number of on demand services. This means if you have the Gett app installed, when you take a Gett ride, a Now card will appear enabling you to instantly book your return journey. You will also be given suggested taxi routes through the Now cards. Simply tap the Google app icon on your Android device to start seeing helpful cards.
All this information comes from the apps you have downloaded on your mobile device. Rather than having to access all of your different apps to find this information, Now cards will give you it all in one convenient app without even having to search for it.
