If you’ve ever been watching a movie, and wanted to know what actor is in it, or what song is playing, or more about the movies and actors in general, Google has an awesome feature for you. If you’re watching a movie in Google Play Movies and TV and you’re using an Android tablet with Ice Cream Sandwich and up, you can now get more information on the movie and actors just by pausing.
When you pause, a few cards will show up with information. You can also press on an actor and it’ll show info about him or her. You’ll have search links for more information, a lot like Google Now. Resuming the movie will remove the cards from view. And while it isn’t available on all movies yet, it’s a really cool feature. If you buy or rent movies from Google Play, this may be a great companion for you.
