Last week, Microsoft updated its Bing search app for Android devices with an awesome feature — a feature that Google already planned to bring to its new OS in the fall. And it's a feature that Apple should definitely borrow for iOS soon.
"So I can hold my finger down on the home button, it reads the screen and searches for it and gives me cards. So here's a card on Anna Kendrick. I can go right into the IMDb app to get more information about her," The Verge's Dieter Bohn said.
Google calls the function Now on Tap because when you tap and hold the home button — on devices running Android Marshmallow — information will be pulled up on cards that has to do with whatever was on screen.
