The folks at Google must be putting in some overtime lately, as there have been several key updates to their personal assistant within the past few weeks. Last week, Techbeat reported that thanks to a new update Google Now would remember where you parked your car in case you couldn’t find it when you came out of the store. That wasn’t the only new feature that has people talking, though. Another update is sure to have people talking…and buying.

That’s right – Google Now will now help you find items you’ve been looking for. For instance, if you’ve used the Google app to search for “Arrow Season 1 Bluray”, you will now get a card that will show up when there’s a nearby store which carries that specific item. Pretty soon, it seems like we won’t need any other assistant besides Google!

Let Google Find It For You!

Along with the store(s) that carry the item, it will also list the available prices. But you’ll have to make a call or actually walk into the store to see if they have any of them left on the shelves. Hey, Google Now can only do so much. Eventually, though, one can only hope the service will be able to check the physical stock of a store.

Of course, if you’re not interested in this service, you can always turn it off in the Google Now settings, or just swipe the card away when it appears on your screen and tell it you’re not interested in seeing those type of notifications.
