Rich notifications could be used by developers to, for example, to allow a mail app to display a list of unread emails or offer thumbnail image previews, Google has previously said.

For a second there my brain transposed the words in the title and I thought...Rich Pop-up Adds
Wouldn't that work well for Google.. ;)
