Google Now will remind you when a product you’ve searched is at a nearby store

Google Now products card

The more “cards” Google keeps packing into their Google Now deck, the better. The latest comes by way of new “Product Cards” that alert a user when a product they’ve searched on Google is nearby.

Remember that Jawbone Jambox Mini you were researching the other day? Well, Google certainly does. And the next time you’re cruising past Target, Google will send you a friendly reminder with a picture of the product, along with its price at your nearest brick and mortar store. Of course, there’s no way for Google to know if the product is actually in stock. It’s up to you to make some kind of physical effort to either call in, or walk into the store for inquiry.

Last week Google Now introduced a handy new card that helps you remember exactly where you parked your car. Anything you’d like to see added in a future update?

Update on Google Play: Google Search

      3) If you choose to get updates about Justin Bieber in Google.com, it will tell you. I get updates about my favorite music artists.

      7) If you set up reminders on your maintenance schedule, it can.

      8) You can setup to see nearby friends… I guess that doesn’t count, though…

      9) That’s already there as well. You have to turn on the setting. To get updates about nearby sales.

      10) That goes back to nearby friend notifications

      11) She has to have Google+ set up.

      I tried. =.S
