    I think the feature may have been a rollout, rather than being immediately switched on for everybody. For example, I have that feature on my 6P (still on 6.0), but not on my 5 (which is on 6.0.1). If you have the feature, you'll see a share icon at the lower left of the Google Now On Tap screen.

    I don't have it either, 6P on 6.0. I tried it while viewing this thread, gave me music search results for "Sean Combs" because of @B.Diddy

    I just recently gained the Share button in my other devices after an update to the Google app, so I think it depends on which version you have. My 6P's Google app is on version 5.7.14.19.arm64. But I signed up for the Google app beta program, so it's possible that this version isn't necessarily the same as the mainstream.

    That's what I was thinking. I also have 6.0.1 without the Now on Tap share feature. I'll have to wait for the Google Now update

    So I just found out in Google now settings that my Google now tap was disabled? After enabling it the Google on tap works now

    Before you enabled it, were you getting any kind of Google Now On Tap options when you long-pressed the Home button? Or did it only show you the usual Google Now swipe-up logo?

    When I would long press it would take me to the Google now page and now when I long press it goes to Google on tap and scans the page

    Ah, that makes sense. You do have to opt in to Google Now On Tap. Glad you figured it out!

    Hi all. I'm in the same boat as kjharrison. I'm just following this thread to see if anyone gets the update and it works for them.

    upgraded to 6.0.1 and still nothing... I REALLY don't like the volume down combination and it always lag behind my presses

    agreed and I have the case from google which is great, but virtually impossible to take a screen shot.

    For those of you who don't have it yet, open Google Now, swipe in from the left, tap Settings>Now Cards, and make sure Now on Tap is switched on. Still nothing?

    Same here. But it's all good I'm exchanging my 6P for another one that is now $50 cheaper thanks to Google's new promotion. Keep impressing me Google!

    It's a server side update. Google has strange ways... It might appear in a week, a day, right now...

    LISTEN UP EVERYBODY this feature isn't in the new update! It's in the Google now update on the playstore. Once Google now updates in app store that enables the feature

    It sounds like a combination of the two factors: you need the most recent update to the Google app, and it also has to be activated on the server side.

    I didn't have the screenshot capability immediately after I got the Google app update last night. I checked again this morning and I now have the "share" button.
