Google updated the Google Play Movies & TV for Android app today with info cards that serve up relevant facts and, well, information on actors, films, music, and more.

So, while watching on a tablet, U.S. users can now pause a movie and, for instance, tap on an actor to retrieve an info card. Oh, and according to TechCrunch, Google’s info cards will only appear for about 192 movies and work on tablets running Android 4.0, but Google hopes to eventually bulk its offering and roll out the feature “on a wider scale.”

Check it out:

The app also allows users to search their libraries and the Play Store for movies and TV shows, receive notifications for new episodes after purchasing a season, and select the “refresh” option in the overflow menu to check for library updates.

Google further announced the free app is now available in India.
