Now on Tap gets a new name in latest Google app beta, adds In Apps home screen shortcut
If you’re currently enrolled in the Google app beta testing program, you may notice a few changes after updating to the latest version.
Version 6.5 beta of the Google app is rolling out to beta testers as we speak, and, oddly enough, it brings a new name for Google Now on Tap, the company’s contextual search feature. According to the folks at 9to5Google, Now on Tap has been renamed to ‘Screen search’, while Now Cards have been renamed to ‘Feed’ in the settings menu. Nothing has changed with the overall functionality of the feature. There’s simply a new name that’s a little more straightforward for the average user.
Now everyone can access 'In Apps' from their home screens
If you’d like to add the shortcut to your device, navigate to Settings>In Apps, then tap Add to home screen.
If you’d like to jump on the Google app beta testing bandwagon, head to this link, select become a tester, then download the latest version of the Google app from the Play Store. Just remember it might take an hour or so before your beta status is confirmed, so you might need to wait a little while before testing out the new version.
