Killer Google Now feature reminds you to cancel subscriptions to services you never use

Best Google Now Features

Google Now is one of Android’s best features and now Android Police has shown us a way to make it even more useful by setting it to remind us to cancel subscriptions to services that we no longer use.

So let’s say that you’ve just realized that you want to cancel Netflix the minute you’ve finished watching up every available House of Cards episode but you just keep forgetting to actually go online and do it once you’ve watched the season finale. You can solve this by telling Google Now to “cancel Netflix” and it will give you a card that contains a direct link to the webpage you need to visit to cancel the service. If you don’t want to cancel it right away, you can have it set up reminders for you so you’ll remember to do it in the future.

Android Police so far has found that the feature will work with Netflix, Hulu Plus, Comcast, Amazon Prime and, yes, even Google’s own Google Play All Access music streaming service. Now, if only there were some way to get Google Now to tell Google to stop trying to force us to use Google+, then it might be the single most useful service ever created.
