A new "Now on Tap" assistant promises to deliver Google Now-like content right from the current app that you are in. According to what was revealed in the developer's edition, users can hold the home button from any app to perform a quick query on the information that they need. Now on Tap will also work with voice queries.

The next major version of Android 6.0, Marshmallow, is expected to be announced this week, with the first smartphones that come preinstalled with it to be available shortly after.
