Good news for forgetful car owners worldwide: Google Maps can now remember where you parked your car. The feature was originally launched in a Google Maps beta for Android, but has now been officially rolled out onto both Android and iOS versions of the app.

The function’s pretty simple: just save your parking spot, and a label will appear on your map. You also have the option to set a timer (lest you get a ticket), send your spot to a friend, or save a pic of the location.

To get the new feature, simply update Google Maps on your Android or iOS smartphone.

Google Maps is available now via Android and iOS app stores.

Speaking of Google, the tech giant also recently unveiled a Fact Checker to stop the spread of fake news.
