Insights When You Need Them, With Hootsuite and the Google app

Blog   /   Social

Whether you’re at work, stuck on the road or on a chairlift heading up a mountain, your phone can bring you the information you need, as long as you know how to find it. The challenge now is that many of us are still missing out on valuable information because we don’t know how to find it or we don’t have time to open up five different apps.

That’s an issue solved by Now cards in the Google app. These cards bring you the information you need when you need it. From the weather and traffic information to stock updates and boarding passes, the cards do the work on your behalf.

We’ve partnered with Google to bring you a new type of Now card focused on social media.

The Hootsuite Now card

Hootsuite highlights your engaging social posts in the Google app. This gives social media professionals a valuable snapshot of their top performing content at the best time.

By highlighting the top performing social post based on clicks, the card is an easy way to see what’s working and what to  promote across other social profiles. Imagine you’re on vacation and don’t want to spend your time tracking your social media performance. At the right time, the Hootsuite Now card will simply notify you about your best performing content. You can then write a few more messages pointing to that post, and get on with your day.

Users can also click the card to jump into the Hootsuite app to see specifics on the post, including:

  • A graph outlining the click stats
  • The original message
  • The number of retweets

The first Now card showing Hootsuite’s content is available in the Google app on Android for users who have the Hootsuite app installed on their device. We’re looking forward to creating more card options for our users in 2015.
