Google have today released an update for its Play Movies and TV app and have added a new search feature to it called the “Info Card” which gives you all detailed the information about the movie which you are watching on your device when it is paused. The app which is available for both Android Smartphones and Tablets, gives the user all the insights and in-depth info about the movie, its cast etc. The update also brings an all new face recognition feature which is integrated along with the Google’s Knowledge Graph. What is does now is that, 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 like the one shown in this picture which is an extract from one of Jack Black’s all time epic hits. So for all those are who using this app should update it right away and for those who are new to it can get their hands on it from the Google Play Store.
