Google Now will check on your car rental reservation and set voice reminders with just your voice
Not sure the dates you made your car rental reservation for? Google remembers. Now, using your voice, you can ask Google Search "When is my rental car reservation?" and you'll get a card back from Google Now. The card, which has been part of the Google Now portfolio for nearly a year, is for your eyes only. It shows your name, reservation number, the rental company you are using, the type of car you are renting, and the dates that the reservation covers.

Also now available from Google is a true voice setting for a reminder. In the past, ask Google Now to remind you to take out the garbage at a certain time, and you would have to tap the screen to confirm your request. That would seem to be a strange thing to have to do when making a reminder via voice.

Google has changed the way a voice reminder is set. Now, ask Google to remind you to take out the garbage at a certain time, and you can confirm the request by saying "yes" or "no". And that's the way a voice reminder should be set.
