Google I/O 2015 – Now on Tap

Google I/O 2015   Now on Tap

There for me was one feature of Android M that stood out above and beyond the rest – Now on Tap. Why is it so amazing? Well, let’s have a look.


We all know that Android can support Google Now which is all well and good, but is it really useful in its current offering?

Well not according to Google, as they have announced that there will be some big improvements including Now on Tap.

Imagine you are arranging to go to a film with a friend and they have sent you a movie title you don’t recognise. You could just take a chance and go to see an unknown movie, perhaps see how it goes. Sounds fun right?

Not if you get stuck in a period romantic drama marathon (insert most hated genre here).

Don’t worry, Google are here to help. All you need to do is tap the Home icon and Google will use its intelligent context awarenes to find that you are looking for info on the film title mentioned and bring up relevant details. It also prompts you to open the relevant apps where you can find more if they are installed i.e. IMDB in this case.

Check out this video below.

I hope that explains it more clearly but I am loving this new feature and I cant wait to start using it.

This works across multiple apps and will also allow you to find app that would potentially be relevant to your search. Great new for App developers.

My favourite feature of this new service is that I can just do a search from within the web browser without having to open another tab!
