Google is attempting to bridge the online and offline worlds with a new feature in Google Now that alerts you if you walk near a product you’ve researched online.
“You’ve been looking for the perfect pair of hiking boots online, but haven’t gotten around to pulling the trigger. Starting today, if you’re out and about and near a store that carries those boots, you might see a Google Now card showing you the product and price to remind you that you wanted them,” reads a Google Plus post. “Now all you have to do is pop into the store and check if they’re in stock!”
