Google is apparently working on an update for its mapping service that would remind users where they have parked their car.

The latest beta version of the app, available for Android users, has a number of features including one that would help people locate their car that they may have parked on a city street or in a huge mall parking lot.

The first feature lets users set their car’s location by tapping on the blue location dot, and selecting the “Save your parking” option in the menu. After setting the location users can also add notes such as parking lot floor or even add pictures to remind them of the surroundings.

A similar feature is currently available in Apple Maps which automatically marks your parked car’s location as soon as you leave your car. The feature, however, needs a Bluetooth connection between your iPhone and car to work.

Google parking feature is still in its early face of development and currently limited to Android users only. There’s also no official word on when it’ll become a public release or when it’ll hit iOS.
