Google Now for Android adds Reminders that can be created with voice commands

Google's reminder app, Google Now, has updated its Android version to include the ability to create reminders entirely through voice command. Previously, voice command was available for creating reminders, however a tap confirmation was required for finalization. Users can now say "yes" or "set" to finish the reminder. Google Now is available for free download.

Google Search adds car rental information for users who have reservations

Google has announced the addition of car reservation information to its mobile Search app. If the user has an upcoming booked car rental, they can ask "when is my rental car reservation?" and the app will pull up a card with the details. The app obtains this information from confirmation emails sent to a connected Gmail account.
