Google Now on Tap came in with a roar, but after the initial excitement, it didn't find a place in the day-to-day use of my phone.
While it was nice to be able to do a rapid-fire Google search from any screen, it usually didn’t produce the kind of “wow” moments to make me a regular user, unlike when I first discovered Google Now.
Fortunately, that’s changing. Some behind-the-scenes updates and more up-front features have turned Now on Tap into an essential part of how I use Android. It’s become so ingrained that I often have that, “oh right, I can’t do that” moment when using iOS or a desktop PC.
If you’re a Now on Tap newbie and would like to know more about what can be discovered, here’s a breakdown of some of the most interesting discoveries. As with most Google searches, the more you experiment and and try it out in new settings, the better your experience will be.
