New Google Now Alarms Wake You Up For Correct Stops During Public Transport Published on June 8, 2014 by Jamil Bryant
Ah Google Now
Okay, so this has happened to all of us. We’re tired and weary from the long day at work and all we want to do is go home and get a good nights rest. The same goes for those party people who love to stay out all night getting drunk. With gas prices being so high or you are being responsible in attempts to avoid a drunk driving charge, a lot of us will turn to public transportation as a way to get to and from destinations we so desire to go to. Usually, rolling around on a bus half asleep (or drunk) can be soothing and you can’t help but let yourself go into the world of dreamland. Most of the time when this happens we miss our stop and end up on the end of town that we wish weren’t on. Next thing we know, we’re either calling up our entire call log or calling it a night and camping out at the bus station. Well Google has solved our dreary problems with a new feature that they have integrated within Google Now.
Now when you are using public transportation, you can open Google Now and you will be given the option to set an alarm for saved locations like Home and Work. The alarm knows approximately when and where to let you off so you don’t miss your stop. All you have to do is just tap the alarm when you are on the bus or train and it will be ready for when you take that little nap that is hard to come over. The alarm alerts you before you reach your destination so you can be aware of where you are and have time to get off the bus before it closes its doors again. The newly integrated feature is nifty. One thing to keep in mind is that this feature is not part of the Clock app that is on your device The alarm is only in Google now and shows up when you use public transportation. Its easy to use, just tap it once to set the alarm and tap it again to disable it. This entry was posted in Android App News.
