google parking reminder 640x568According to a report earlier this month, it was suggested that Google could soon introduce parking reminders to Android users, thus reminding users where they might have parked their car which we have to admit can come in handy, especially in big parking lots. We weren’t sure when the feature would make its debut, but the good news is that you won’t have to wait for the next version of Android because the update is already here.

Along with the release of standalone apps of Google Docs and Google Sheets, Google has also updated its Google Search up to version 3.4, an upgrade over the previous version of 3.3. In the update it had been discovered that Google Search now gives users a Parking Location card which basically detects where you parked your car, saves its location so that you can use it to track back to it.

Apparently this feature is done automatically meaning that users won’t have to manually check themselves in or set the location, thus making the feature even more convenient and handy. However this means that the feature will only be able to provide you with an approximate location of your car, so it can bring you to the area and from there you’ll have to identify your car yourself, which we can only imagine is a no-brainer.

Now we should note that according to reports, updating Google Search to version 3.4 will break compatibility with the GEL Settings Xposed Module, so if you are a fan of the module, perhaps you’ll want to skip this update for now. For those who don’t use the module, feel free to go ahead and update Google Search!
