It displays cards with extra info and application shortcuts, On top of what ever you're doing. Just press and hold the home button on your android to activate it. Here are three ways to use it. Number one, making plans. When you're texting or emailing a friend about getting dinner or catching a movie use now on tap to help make your decision. With now on tap, you'll see a star rating for the restaurant your friend mentioned. Plus a link to Google maps to get directions. And if you have the OpenTable app installed on your phone, you'll also get a shortcut to reserve a table. Planning to see a movie too. Now on tap shows a description of the film, a shortcut to the trailer on YouTube, and a link to the cast. Number two, look it up.
