Google has just updated its Play Movies & TV app to include what it calls "Info Card" search, giving you information about the movie you're watching when you pause.
If you're using the app on a tablet, you can now pause movies. You'll also find that Google's Knowledge Graph has been added to the app with power of facial recognition. Now, instead of pulling up cards with information from the a movie's metadata, Google is using facial recognition to pull up info on actors and Sound Search to pull up the music played in a movie.
What's in this version:
- On tablets, press pause to discover actors, related films, and even what song is playing. Look for movies with the info cards badge. US only.
- Search across your library and the Play Store for movies & TV shows.
- Receive notifications for new TV show episodes if you've purchased the season.
- Select the "refresh" option in the overflow menu to checks for any updates to the library.
- Now available in India!
