Here's an up close look at Google Now on Tap
posted by Maxwell R. / May 29, 2015, 1:27 AM
We got to watch a demonstration of Now on Tap up close to see it in action. The demo was pretty much the same as what was presented during the Keynote. However, it is all the better to see it up close.
Now on Tap makes Google Now available without having to leave an app you might be using. More than that, Google Now has contextual access to what you are doing. The result is Google Now linking to more relevant sources, such as movie trailers if you are reading a message to go to the movies, or restaurant reviews if you are corresponding on where to go for dinner.
Our demo worked very smoothly. There was one part where Google Now did not respond, but the device lounge was very loud, and the platform is still being developed, bear that in mind with the video.
What is great about this enhancement is that it will work without any needed work by the app developers, Now on Tap will work across the platform.

We have officially moved to phablets all around and still no multi window? Not buying another nexus anytime soon. Stock android has lost its charm totally. Still dont understand how this was a major release as pointed out by Google VP. Not impressed at all!

I feel you. That's one of the main reasons I got the Note 4 instead of the nexus 6. Better to have extra features and don't need them much, than to need them and not have them. I'm actually exited about this Google now on Tap. it's going to make everything so much easier!

Why are all your videos out of focus most of the time ?! I've seen several videos at PA and the camera really struggles to remain in focus. It gets very annoying. Also, a decent editing won't hurt. I don't wanna hear: Natel: Okay ? John V: Alright ? Natel: Okay? John V.: Whenever you're ready? Natel: Okay.
