Yahoo! unveiled the next evolution of "IntoNow," now at version 3.0 IntoNow gives you entirely new ways to share, learn and engage with your TV, your friends and the broader IntoNow community on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android.
"IntoNow Brings you a true TV companion experience with synchronized news headlines, in-depth sports stats, and tweets from your favorite actors."
Here are the features in version 3.0:
- TV and Music Sync: IntoNow 3.0 automatically surfaces relevant content, including sports teams, personalities, articles, scores, polls, or trivia - right as it's happening on TV. "Whether you're listening to a live performance, featured song or background music, Music Sync will automatically identify the music playing," Yahoo said - a first! Songs surfaced by Music Sync can be one-click purchased through iTunes or people can view the music video on YouTube.
- CapIt lets you capture and add your caption to a TV moment (like breaking news story, red carpet dazzler or a funny scene), so you can share it on Facebook, Twitter or IntoNow. Simply tap a button and IntoNow will instantly synchronize and deliver still images of what you're watching on TV.
- Group Chat lets you create private conversations with friends, form groups for a particular TV event or set up groups to talk about favorite shows as the season progresses.
Yahoo created a infographic (below), based on some of last season's most popular TV shows to demonstrate the depth of IntoNow's vast amount of data:
