Google has been adding a variety of features to its digital assistant, Google Now. And with every update, Google has been trying to make it even smarter. The latest update added the ability to read and reply messages, just like an answering machine. There’s one more feature that has made its way to Google Now, which keeps a track on your recent product searches and also suggests about price drops.

With the new update, Google Now can intelligently track your shopping searches and notify you in case there are any price drops. 

For instance, if you were looking for a pair of shoes on a shopping site, Google Now would keep a track of them and alert you in case there is a price drop. However, at this point is seems Google only tracks the pricing on the same shopping site you visited rather than giving the best price on the Internet.
