Google is apparently bent on stuffing Now on Tap full of features in a short amount of time. On top of adding screenshot support, it's introducing both flight statuses and related news stories to Android Marshmallow's signature search feature. If a friend sends you a flight number, you only have to hold the home key to get that trip's status. And if you find an interesting news piece, Now on Tap will show you more articles covering the same subject. It may take a few days before you see these options popping up on your phone, so don't fret if your queries come up empty for a little while.
