Google’s Now on Tap gets more helpful for the holidays

by John_A

With Android Marshmallow, Google debuted a super useful feature called Now on Tap – an efficient way to ping a search from any screen. It enhances the power of the search giant and gets us to the information we need that much quicker.

As it typically goes with new features, there’s lots of room for improvement. With the holidays in full swing, Google made a couple updates to Now on Tap to make it a valuable assistant during this busy time.

For instance, if we’re traveling or picking up a family member who is, we can simply toggle Now on Tap to quickly ping the flight status.


Or we can quickly check the status of gifts we’ve ordered. From the package’s confirmation email, you can toggle Now on Tap to get the tracking details.

The great thing about Now on Tap is that it overlays the search information on top of the app you’re currently using. Just dismiss the results to go back to what you were doing.


Google says it’s adding in a Share button to the results “over the coming days”. Also, the following language packages are available with Now on Tap: French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian, and Korean. Of course, more languages and features will be added later.
