Hallelujah! Google Maps' life-saving parking feature is now on Android and iOS


Those 'someone's nicked my car' days are over.

There's nothing quite like the feeling of returning to a car park only to realise you have no idea where you left your car.

Are you looking on the wrong level? Has someone really nicked your knackered Renault Clio? Have you been the victim of a stealth paint job prank? No, you've just forgotten where you parked.

Don't worry – we've all been there.

Thankfully, Google Maps is here to ensure you never need to suffer like that again, as its brand new parking location feature has now been officially rolled out on both Android and iOS devices. Hallelujah.

To activate the feature, simply tap the blue dot that denotes your location on the map. For Android, press "Save your parking" and on iOS, "Set as parking location". It really is that simple.

And that's not the only neat feature Google has been rolling out on its services – the newly-renovated Google Earth just introduced one of its coolest features yet.

Not content with offering users virtual tours of some of the world's natural wonders (which is cool enough, let's face it), there's now the option to go on a tour voiced by Sir David Attenborough.

The tours feature content from some of Sir David's pioneering docuseries, including Life Story, Africa and Planet Earth II, so not only will you have fun, but you'll learn stuff, too.
