One of the highlight features of Android 6.0 Marshmallow is Google Now on Tap, which offers simple and useful functionality. It's all about Google Now analyzing the contents on your smartphone screen so it can deliver relevant information based on that.

Should someone ask you something about a supermarket, for instance, Google Now on Tap will bring out supermarket details, including directions, website and whatever that supermarket might have in stock.

It's an interesting feature we believe many Android users will want to take advantage of, and that is why we are going to share some simple instructions on how to enable and disable Google Now on Tap.

How to activate Google Now on Tap:

First you'll need to make sure the Google app is installed on your device and Google Now is all set up and ready to go. If you haven't set it up yet, just open the Google app and tap on "Yes, I'm in!" to enable Google Now.

Next, you'll need to open Google Now and then open the app menu. To do so, you can either slide from the left or press the menu button on the top left (the icon with three lines). From there on, access Settings and head over to the Voice section of the menu. A Google Now on Top option will appear with a check box next to it. Checking this box enables the feature.

At this point, using Google Now on Tap should be a breeze. Bear in mind, however, that only devices powered by Android 6.0 Marshmallow support this new feature.

Once enabled, Google Now on Tap is easy to use. The feature simply requires the user to press and hold the Home button to have the software has analyze content on a screen, which can be from a text message, email, or anything else.

How to deactivate Google Now on Tap:

Should you feel the need to turn off Google Now on Tap, you'll need to open the Google app again and touch the menu button, i.e. the icon that looks like a hamburger. Tap on Settings and select Now Cards. From here, all you'll need to do is turn off Google Now on Tap.
