Google introduces Info Cards to Play Movies

So you like the idea of Amazon’s X-Ray for TV and Movies but don’t purchase your media through Amazon? No, you’re a Google Play Movies type of person.  You’re in luck! Google today announced that a very similar experience is now available for movies through Google Play Movies.

Have you ever wondered “What’s the name of that actor?” or “Where have I seen him before?” Now, when you pause a supported movie on your tablet, you’ll see info cards for the actors on screen and any music playing. You can then add their related movies to your Google Play wishlist, get the soundtrack, or search Google to discover even more about the actors or film.

Naturally, the info cards look very Google Now, and open the door to other media through the Play Store.
