Google Play Movies has come up with an innovative pop-up option that can provide you with all sorts of great movie trivia. Thanks to a new update, the Google Play Movie app now features an info card which provides you with a short breakdown of the actor who is presently on the screen. The way it works is this: you are watching a video, but can’t exactly remember who the actor is or any other information pertaining to him or her. A tap on the actor’s face is all that’s needed, and an info card will pop up alongside containing the actor’s name along with other bits of information that might be relevant to the movie or video currently being viewed.
The update also brings along a few cool features which include the ability to search through the Google Play Store or one’s own library at the same time. Plus the overflow menu also gets a new refresh button with the update, while the app will also provide you with notifications for new episodes of the TV shows you’ve bought.
The feature is now available on all Android tablets running Android 4.0 ICS and higher. Also, hundreds of movies and videos work with the pop up information update, and more movies are being added every day. Google has also stated that though the feature is now limited to just tablets, more devices will soon be brought on board, and in more countries.
