Now cards can recommend playlists and stations from Spotify, TuneIn or YouTube based on your preferences.

To get all the updates and notifications users will need to grab the latest versions of not just the Google app, but also of all the Android apps that will display these cards. Google did not say when it plans to bring the feature to its iOS app, though it did promise “more apps and functionality” are on the way for Android.
