Well, the talk is about the capability that reminds you where you have parked your car. To know where you have parked your vehicle, Shelf requires access to GPS. As it depends on the location of your OnePlus smartphone, it is limited to the outdoor parking spaces and places where GPS is accessible. When it comes to underground parking or indoor parking, you can take an image of the parking area to know the location of your vehicle.

Notably, this feature to save parking location was rolled out as part of the update to the OnePlus Launcher taking it to the version 3.3.2. This update is available on Google Play Store for interested users. Following the update, many users have taken to the OnePlus forums revealing that this feature is seen on devices running Android 9 Pie. So, the users of OnePlus 6, 6T, OnePlus 5 and 5T will get this feature to save car parking location.

A similar feature is already supported by Google Maps. It lets users save the parking location so that it is easy for them to locate their vehicle later. There can be increased possibilities for the OnePlus parking location feature to use the Google Maps API. Besides this feature, the app also comes with many enhancements to app search.
