As convenient as Google Now may be, it has its limits: you're limited to Google's official services, and it's not very useful when you're driving or otherwise can't stare at your phone. A recent Android Police teardown of Android's search app has revealed that Google is exploring a handful of new features that would let you use Now in more situations. To begin with, there's preliminary code for spoken notifications. If you're on the road, you could get your phone to read traffic warnings aloud instead of distracting yourself by looking at the screen. There have been hints of a hands-free mode in Android for a while, but the new code hints that you might not even need to look in many cases.
