This awesome new Google Now feature will save you a ton of money

Google Now is the best thing to happen to mobile devices in years, and the scary part is that it is constantly getting better. It seems like every time we turn around, Google is adding great new functionality to its brilliant virtual mobile assistant, and now a new addition that rolled out on Monday will not only improve your Google Now experience on Android and iOS, but also save you a bunch of money in the process.

FROM EARLIER: Google Now just got much better thanks to a killer Google app you’ve never heard of

As noted by Android Police on Monday, Google Now recently added an awesome new feature that has the potential to save frequent travellers a ton of money. In fact, even people who travel only sporadically stand to save some serious cash thanks to Google.

Since Google Now features such deep integration with Google search, it obviously has the ability to tell when you’ve been searching for a flight. Now, however, Google Now will take note of a search and constantly monitor specific flights for you, periodically popping up a card that shows pricing changes for the flights you’re looking for.

Google Now’s new flight price monitor card is yet another example of the fantastic integration between Google services. Some call it “evil,” and in some ways it might be. But Google’s data-sharing features also enable services that no other company can come close to providing, and Google Now is the perfect solution to showcase those capabilities.
