Google didn't mention its smart-fabric jacket platform, Jacquard, at its recent . But the is getting an update that could be pretty helpful, starting next week, if you happen to own one.
With a button tap from its cuff, the jacket can now work with ride-sharing services Uber and Lyft. Unfortunately, it doesn't call an Uber or Lyft for you, but once a ride is dialed up the jacket will ping when the ride's there.
The Snap Tag on the cuff will light up and vibrate when the car's arrived, or a wearer could brush the jacket's smart cuff fabric and hear information on the car's progress from connected headphones.
Other new features include a way to tag your location by dropping a pin in a new Places mode, and gesture control that hooks into Bose Aware Mode, turning noise canceling on and off in QC30 and QC35 headphones on the fly.

The iOS and Android apps for Jacquard will receive the extra updates over the coming week, according to Google.
Editors' note: Updated and corrected at 3:57pm ET: the jacket can connect to ride sharing, but cannot call an Uber/Lyft directly.
