Updates on Google Now on Tap


Google Now on Tap created buzz when it was launched. Sadly, it didn’t meet the expectations of its users of reducing the number of steps to perform tasks. So, to get it back on track, Google is going to add new features to it. The updates make it more feasible to gather information from search engines, both using a word and the image.

According to sources, an icon will be seen which will, however, highlight the selected text when ‘Now on Tap’ is launched. A finger icon will be seen through which a specific word can be selected and be searched instantly on Google. The relevant content is searched on web on other Google apps.now-on-tap-image-text-search

This app actually show its best use when it comes to images. Use an existing picture, camera or image from any other app to test Google’s recognition capabilities. It might look silly, but a good way to get instant information
