I would love to see Google open up some APIs and give developers the option to include Google Now card settings. Surely I am not alone in thinking developers could detail changelogs and app updates better with instant notifications. As long the end user gets to opt in and out of features, I see no reason why Google Now shouldn't be expanded to include more non-Google properties.

Going much broader, Google could also create a sturdier gaming hub that could connect friends and other players and provide leaderboards and achievements. Google+ seems to be the most logical way to tie users together; I also see potential for Google Now connections.
Imagine being prompted that your buddy just beat your high score in the racing game and he's throwing down a new challenge, Perhaps a daily notification of how you stack up against friends and players around the world, I would love to see something along these lines, just so long as developers play by the rules and we can opt in to the notifications, What about you?Is portrait of a highland cow - vertical orientation iphone case there something particular that you hope to see come with the next major Android version?

Then there's the sheer number of Android devices out there -- 144.7 million Android smartphones were sold in the fourth quarter, according to Gartner.
