Google Play Adds ‘Info Cards’ to Content27 Mar, 2013 By: Chris Tribbey
Google Play’s movies and TV shows will begin including more metadata, including information on actors, related films, soundtracks and more.
The “info cards” will be available on tablets running Android 4.0 or higher, and work using the Google Play Movies & TV App.
“We’ve added info cards to the Google Play Movies & TV app so you can easily learn more about the actors, related films and even what song is playing in many of your favorite movies,” said Ben Serridge, product manager for Google Play. “When you’re watching a film on your tablet, simply press pause and cards will pop up with information about actors on screen.”
The feature launches with a couple hundred movies enabled, with more being added daily, Serridge said. Google hopes to add the feature to more devices soon.
