Google Assistant brings back automatically remembering your parking spot

Google Assistant brings back handy parking location functionality

Google Assistant brings back handy parking location functionality

Google Assistant will now automatically display where you parked without you doing anything.

That's because this was apparently a thing back in the Google Now days of 2014, going away for some reason several years ago only to recently return in modernized fashion. Or in this case, you go Hey Google, where's my auto. While it won't pinpoint the site completely, especially in parking garages, it's a handy option if you've been out for a long day and will remember that where you left the vehicle in town. Particularly if you forget both where you parked and to manually command your voice assistant to save the location of your auto, in which case this could prove an outright life-saver. While you can always manually save your parking spot in Google Maps or track it through your location history on Maps, this is still the more convenient way to do so. It estimates when you stopped driving and started walking and assumes that's where you parked. In case you actually managed to do not forget to save your location on your Maps, it will assume it is the most accurate information and so it's the information it will show in your card. Android Police additionally explains that this doesn't take note of Android Auto or Bluetooth to much more accurately know precisely when you've parked and gotten from your vehicle.

The phenomenon had not previously been factored into predictive models considering temperature and ocean level rises. A storm of protest on Twitter led to a compromise that allowed the Boaty McBoatface name to live on.

Those who are interested in using the Parking Location feature should have their location turned "On". The feature is by all accounts taking off as a server-side change for the most part indiscriminately, so drop a remark underneath in case they are seeing it on their gadget. Odds are that most Android users are using Google Maps by default for directions anyway-where you'll set your parking spot by tapping on the blue dot when you've parked-so it's only a minimal amount of added effort.
