In case you guys may have missed this, an update to Google Now started rolling out a couple of days ago that added a couple pretty nifty features that we have been waiting for. The first addition to Google Now is parking locations, when you drive somewhere and park your car Google Now will create a card that will let you know where you parked your car and even how to get to it. There has been no word on how this will work for instance if you take the bus but we’re sure Google has figured out a way to tell the difference between being on a bus and driving a car.

Something else cool that was added to Google Now is the ability to tell you what stores are in the mall that you are currently at. How this works is when you are at a mall just pull out your phone and Google Now will tell you what stores are in that particular mall, this is a very convenient way to see if that store you are looking for is in the mall you are currently in. While this feature does not yet tell you where you are in said mall it still proves to be very convenient and will most likely be added in a later update.

Worth noting is the fact that the parking location feature talked about in the first paragraph is only available on Android and not iOS devices, this is due to more open Android APK’s.
