Google’s New Commercial For “Now on Tap” Shows You Why You Should Care About The Feature

Back at Google I/O 2015, Google announced Android M, later to be known as Android Marshmallow, and it caught out attention for a number of reasons. First, it was cleaner. The company had fixed a lot of their mistakes from Lollipop and the update really gave a much more polished feeling. The second reason was for the new features. One that certainly caught my eye and that of a lot of other users was Google Now on Tap. Google’s incredible demos of the feature on stage got us all pretty excited, but once it was finally released, it didn’t quite live up to the hype.

Now that’s not to say Now on Tap is bad, in fact it’s just the opposite. Now on Tap is by far one of the coolest features any OS has offered in a long time, but it’s hard to remember to use it. To help us remember and to show new users just how cool it is, Google has today released a new commercial to advertise the feature. Check it out below.

Pretty cool huh? Google Now on Tap is exclusive to Android Marshmallow and up, so if you’re using a newer smartphones, odds are you have access. Do you use Google Now on Tap? Let us know in the comments!

    Another useless feature that the average person will never use.

      Actually the average person would use this daily. I gifted my old phone to my grandmother and she uses this just about every day.

    I use it, but every time I’m reminded of it I go what the hell I could have used that earlier. I just need to be conscious that the feature is there. It’s an amazing feature that needs to be taken advantage of.
