Remembering where you have parked your car is one tricky business for many drivers. When you say that you always have had a hard time remembering where you have parked your car, well, you are not alone.
In these times of need, there is nothing wrong about asking help from technology. Especially if it does a better job than you do. Now, Google Assistant revives a very useful feature to help out forgetful drivers out there.
Google Assistant automatically remembers where users have parked their cars
This feature where Google Assistant automatically remembering where you have parked is not new at all. The tech company has already introduced this feature way back in 2014. Unfortunately, Google took it away for some reasons.
But, it now appears that Google is bringing back this feature, as discovered by Android Police’s users. According to these users, there is a card in Google Assistant recently which shows where they have parked their cars.
But because the feature has been out in the limelight for a while, many have wondered how really does it work. Just like with the previous feature on Google Now, this one relies on location history to estimate where users have stopped driving and started walking.
Unfortunately though, it won’t pinpoint the exact location, especially in parking garages, but it it sure is a handy thing if you are out and about the whole and can’t remember you have left your car.
Manually save parking spot to get more accurate information
You can also manually save your parking spot. This way, Google Assistant will instantly recognize it and will show you a more accurate information in the card if it is available.
Also, Android Police noted that Google will not be able to calculate the exact location for people who are using Android Auto or a Bluetooth connection to their car. Even if you interrupt the link to the vehicle, unfortunately, it is not programmed to interpret it as a parking event.
Automatic or manual – feature is still very handy
Regardless if automatic or not, this feature proves to be a very useful for all forgetful drivers out there. Unfortunately, this feature does not seem to be available to all, just yet. The feature seems to still be rolling out as a server-side change mostly at random.
