Android can now wake you up when you’re close to your bus stop

Sleeping on the subway

If you’ve ever taken the bus or subway home after drinking too much at a party, you know how tough it can be to get off at the right stop — you may fall asleep well before then. That shouldn’t be an issue if you’re using a recent Android phone, however. Android Police has noticed that the latest version of Google Now on Android lets you set an alarm that wakes you up shortly before a favorite destination comes up; you can safely catch some shut-eye knowing that you’ll still be home on time. There are third-party apps that offer similar reminders, but it’s good to have a built-in safety net when you’re not entirely sober.
