Google's always adding new tidbits to Google Now voice search, like that tweak to reminders we posted earlier today. According to ye olde Google Twitter account, you can also ask Google search about your rental car reservations.

Just casually ask Google search "when is my rental car reservation," and you'll get a card with the location, type of reservation, and dates. Just a quick, handy feature, and very much the kind of thing that would be super-useful on a smart watch, don't you think?

    When I first read this in Feedly, "New Google Voice..." I was all like... whaaaat, then I clicked through. :/

      Just as i thought they were finally getting Google Voice ready for Hangouts integration at the title.

    Somehow a Corolla is a mid-size car now? Wow...

  • DoctorRabbitfoot

    Doesn't look like it is working for me :( (With a confirmation email in "Starred" Gmail from AAA)

      Are you using a Google App account? AFAIK, none of the Gmail card would work if you are a Google App user -- sadly, I am one of them.

      • DoctorRabbitfoot

        Nope, not Google Apps

    I'll give this a shot later today. I've got a rental car reservation tomorrow. Thanks for the tip!

    Trying to be like Cortana? Typical Google, just stealing other's ideas

    • Nathan Walters

      To me, it seems like Microsoft "stole" the "scan people's stuff to find useful data" idea from Google first. We should stop complaining about competing platforms taking ideas from each other. That creates competition and ultimately benefits us, the consumer.

        I think he was joking though.

  • Tj Hariharan

    You forgot to mention "US only" methinks...

    • Joan Yu

      "US only", yes?

  • google sees you

    Who gives a shit. Lets get GV calls over data.
