Do you have difficulty remembering where you’ve parked? If you do, you’re not alone, especially if you’re somewhere you’re not too familiar with. However, thanks to technology, remembering where we’ve parked is pretty easy. In fact, it seems that Google Assistant will now be able to remember where you’ve parked automatically.
But wait, isn’t this an old feature? Yup, if you remember, Google actually introduced the feature way back in 2014, but for some reason, the company decided to take it away. However, as Android Police have discovered, it appears that Google has decided to bring the feature back to Google Assistant.
How it works is that it can detect when you’ve stopped driving and have started walking. Based on this, it will assume that you have reached your destination, parked, and have exited the vehicle. As Android Police notes, this is the reason why the feature might not always be 100% accurate, but hopefully it should still give you a rough idea of where you’ve parked. Plus, you could always press the alarm feature of your car if you really can’t find it and hope that the sound can point you in the right direction.
Alternatively, you could always manually save where you’ve parked using Google Maps, but this automatic feature could also be useful if you forget.
