Google now offers enhanced entertainment search results on Android
Those totin' an Android phone or tablet will be able to receive enhanced Google Search results in the category of entertainment, starting today. Thanks to an update to Google Search for Android, users will be able to find out exactly where they have seen a familiar looking actor before. Or, get suggestions from Google about new songs to check out, or movies to see. Whether you're trying to find the lyrics to Don McLean's American Pie or Guster's This Is How It Feels To Have A Broken Heart, Google Search will be the place to look.

If you spend plenty of time in front of the boob tube watching a particular sitcom or drama, you'll be able to find out everything you want to know about past and future episodes, who makes up the cast, and more. If you're planning to see The Force Awakens, showtimes for your local theaters will appear in the search results for the film. And no, you won't have to use your special edition Motorola DROID R2-D2 Special Edition to access that information. Punch in the name of your favorite musical act, and you'll see a list of their recording history, and tour dates if applicable. The search results will also let you listen to the act's songs through your installed music related apps.

If you're an Apple iPhone or Apple iPad user who would love to have all of this information at his/her fingertips through Google, there is no need to pout. Google says the iOS version of its app will soon receive the same update.
