Why doesn’t this surprise me…
Google can now read your bills AND remind you to pay them, simply by scanning your emails.
The new service, Google Now personal assistant functionality, will notify users of payments by scanning for bills in your Google, Gmail accounts. Some other new features which I like slightly better than digging through my emails for bills, are reminding you of your flight times, as well as where you parked your car!
That’s great, sometimes you just get careless, and forget where you parked, it happens…
To access the service users need to tap the microphone on the Google app.
After saying ‘show me my bills’ or ‘my bills due this week’, the app will reveal upcoming payments they need to make.
…And for people like myself, who are still somewhat skeptical about the email reading. We’re able to disable the feature by turning off Google Now. It is only available to those who have enabled it.
