Google Now, Google’s mobile on-demand information service, has added support for bitcoin services provider Coinbase.
The news comes amid a service update in which it introduced new “cards” that aim to deliver timely information to Android phone users while removing their need to search for it directly.
The launch included 40 cards, each based on a company or popular Internet service such as Airbnb, Pandora and Coinbase.
According to the company, Coinbase’s card will specifically notify Google Now users when there are fluctuations in the price of bitcoin, while Airbnb’s will suggest travel information.
With the news, Google Now becomes the latest Google service that supports some bitcoin-related functionality, following its decision to add bitcoin prices to its search engine this summer.
