Google Now on Tap, one of the most eagerly awaited innovations of the upcoming Android 6.0 Marshmallow, finally available thanks to the 5.3 update of the Google app. Not everyone will be able to take advantage of the smarter version of the virtual assistant: the conditio sine qua non in fact the installation on the smartphone of the third and last Developer Preview of Android M.

As we told you, the new version of Google Now designed to have immediate search answers based on the context. For example, if we receive an email citing a movie in the text, just hold down the Home button and a series of tabs will appear with useful information about the movie, without having to exit the current application.

Being an early taste, there are obviously still bugs and slowdowns, which will then be adjusted on the occasion of the official launch of the function. Among the novelties for the previous Lollipop and Android systems, there is also the new Google Now Launcher, which presents itself to users with a renewed interface, which lets you scroll apps and widgets vertically.
