Setting voice reminders in Android is neat, but it's one of those processes that seems arbitrarily hobbled by the need to tap a button on the screen after you're done talking. Well, no more. Google has flipped a switch on the server side that makes the process work entirely by voice.

Google Now does a lot of neat things, but the way Google plugs in its wealth of data makes sure the functionality changes often and in unexpected ways. Case in point, it helps you set reminders for some oddly specific events. Need to cancel an auto-renewing membership? Try asking Google Now.

At some point or another, everyone goes to a new mall. Maybe it's an old mall in a new town, or a new mall in an old town. The point is the same: it's a mall you've never been to before.

We've reported on several Google Now-related rumors recently. If our information is accurate, Google Now will soon be able to help you remember and pay for bills, automatically infer events from your communications, and serve you reminders depending on who is near you. Today, we've got another one. This time, Google wants to help you remember where you left your car.

A few days ago, we posted a rumor we felt pretty confident in that would see "who" added to Google's "when" and "where" options for reminders. We now have another rumor, from a source familiar with the matter, which is also related to Google Now's ever-expanding functionality.
