Google Now Remembers Where You Parked Your Car

No longer will you have to spend a half an hour looking for your vehicle

I once read an article that argued, if Seinfeld was born throughout the 21st century, it would not have lasted.

Much of the episode plots revolved around waiting for phone calls (rendered obsolete due to cell phones) or the gang not finding each other at the movies (same thing), or that episode where Jerry and co. couldn't find where Kramer had parked his car.

The latter has, however, remained an incessant nuisance. I mean, how many of you have spent minutes, if not hours, looking for where you parked your car.

I know it happens to me at least once a month.

But now, thanks to Google (who else?) that problem too will become one of the past.

Google Now has announced a new feature, one that will use your phone's s sensors to figure out exactly when you exited a vehicle that was moving so they can pinpoint your car's location automatically.

No longer do you need to wonder, did I park it on Queen Street? Or was it King?.......

The new Google Now update comes with other features as well, albeit, not as exciting as the ability to find your parked car. Now you can give your contacts nicknames, there's a new interface that provides you with reminders, and there's a new voice-command setting as well.

The update is currently being released by Google Now, or you can head over to Android Police to download it now.
