While Google Now is pretty darn smart already, it usually has to take its time or come across incidental information and churn on it before letting you know in a Now card. With Google Now on Tap, it’s putting out what it gets in with a long press of the home button.
Now on Tap is still a new feature that isn’t as fully-fleshed as its stewed edition — using algorithms to perform tricks live on an expanded array of applications just ain’t the same. It’s catching up, though, especially with some updates today.
For one thing, you can now hit up an airliner’s flight status or a shipper’s delivery status just by having the respective callsign on-screen. If you’re catching up on news, you can also learn more about people of interest through Now on Tap’s suggestions for related articles and also share what’s on your screen on social media. Finally, the feature’s now up for French, German, Italian, Korean, Russian and Spanish readers as well.
Just remember, though: Now on Tap comes on Marshmallow.
