Google_Marshmallow_NowOnTap_DevPreview3_091715_1Google Now On Tap is one of the most anticipated features of Marshmallow. Recently, Google rolled out update v5.3 to its Google Search application. This will bring Now On Tap support to those running the M Dev Preview 3.

Now On Tap has gotten many really excited for the next iteration of Android. We’re expecting Marshmallow to release publicly at the end of the month when Google announces its 2015 lineup of Nexus devices. Users can access Now On Tap by holding down on the home button. The feature will allow users to obtain information of what’s on the screen at that given moment. Therefore, making research and visibility to quick facts and answers really easy. Google showed us some examples of this at this years I/O conference. The feature displays details such as recommended apps, people details, location details and even the time of the next movie showing at a nearby theater. Google_Marshmallow_NowOnTap_DevPreview3_091715_2

According to Android Police, Now On Tap is a little buggy and often causes crashes; however we should see improvement to performance when it comes time for the final release. September 29 can’t come soon enough.
