Google Search displays your upcoming car rentals


Google Search has taken delivery of a pretty nifty server-side update in the Play Store that gives users the ability to view their upcoming car rental information without having to touch their smartphone or tablet.

In order to take advantage of this great new addition to the Google Now service, users need to start Google Search by saying “OK Google” from their home screen on any KitKat device running the latest Google Now interface, then say, “When is my next rental car reservation?” Then they will then be presented with the information.

This new feature appears to be working on all Jelly Bean (4.1.-4.3) and KitKat (4.4-4.4.2) smartphones and tablets currently located in the U.S. and the U.K. However, it’s expected that compatibility will expand to some European countries over the course of the next two weeks.

The update is now live and has been rolled out via Google’s private Android servers, so there’s no need to manually download and install an update as it has already been done for you behind the scenes.
