Users on Android's latest flavor, Marshmallow (version 6.0), are also likely familiar with Google Now on Tap. To summarize, this feature will attempt to provide contextual information from any screen on your device. So if a friend mentions a restaurant in a Hangouts message, you can use Google Now on Tap to quickly bring up directions or ratings.
The latest update to Google Now on Tap removes the need to use hardware buttons to take a screenshot. This will be welcome news to anyone who isn't fond of the button combination, or users with device cases that make it difficult to only press the necessary buttons.
Here's how to grab your screenshot with Google Now on Tap:
- Press and hold the Home button until Google Now on Tap appears.
- Tap the share button in the bottom left-hand corner.
A screenshot will be taken and the share menu will appear.
You'll be able to share the screenshot as you would any other image from your device.
If you're not a fan of Google Now on Tap, and find it's in your way more than it helps you out, you can also learn how to disable it.
