Field Trip cards to soon appear in Google Now

Field Trip, one of our favorite apps for discovering new and interesting places while traveling, is about to find a new way to help users learn more about nearby things and places.

According to new reports, Field Trip cards should soon begin showing up in Google Now, leading to more discovery. Known as “Nearby Discoveries, you might find a card on restaurants, historical facts, nearby POIs, and other fun stuff. Perhaps you’ll learn of a highly rated burger joint or be tipped off to a particular building used for a popular building.

We love having Field Trip open on our Android devices, especially when we’re in new cities. From the sounds of things it will not be required to installed Field Trip to take advantage of the features.
