There are some rumours on the Internet about a new product from Android, called Hera. Hera seems to be a HTML5-based syncing technology with which you could do in-app actions without launching them. These actions will be handled by Hera outside those apps in what we actually know as multitasking pane.
This new technology will work for Android apps and for third-party ones. Also it will work for Chrome, for which will be included search actions. The multitasking view will show you the recent app cards and the synced tasks from Chrome activity. Hera tries to unify app and non-app tasks or actions that you can perform on the web via HTML5, without launching properly the apps. This can bring up a lot of possibilities for users.
It looks pretty simple: if you receive a subscription e-mail for a website, from Hera you could say yes to it, without opening the e-mail app. From what we understand of it, this type of actions could be performed by Hera. This will become a very productive way to work, as is more efficient to open only Hera and not all the apps you need.
When we will have more about it, we will tell you ! But for now, what do you think about this new technology?
