When will Fido support multi factor authentication via app?

Multi factor authentication is a widely accepted method to improve online security beyond userid/password. It involves generating a unique code in addition to userid/password. The code can either be generated via an app (ex: Authy, Google Authenticator) or sent via text message. Text messages now no longer recommended due to security and requiring cellular service being available (ex: Rogers outage).

When will Fido get on board with this? Many websites (ex: Linkedin, Google) and Canadian financial institutions (ex: Vancity) support this.
