Google Play, the movies and TV app, is making it easier for viewers to find out more about films, TV shows and the actors involved. The app has a new feature called “info cards” that show information about any film or show being watched on an Android tablet. All users have to do is press pause and the info card will appear on the screen. The info cards contain information about the movie or show, the actors, and even the official soundtrack. The info card disappears as soon as the viewer resumes watching. When watching movies or shows using the app, users can also tap on the actor’s face and info about the actor will pop up.
