Google gets serious about holiday planning in travel battle

Android Q phone

Google says it's getting serious about services for travellers.

The new GSEC will make Munich a global hub for Google's efforts towards cross-product privacy engineering, Mr. Pichai wrote in a blog post.

There are a lot of travel apps out there but if you don't feel like downloading another app and if you mostly use Google to look for things like flights, hotels, restaurants, etc, then this new tool from the tech giant will be really helpful for you.

One of these search topics is related to travel.

Trips is a continuation of a travel-based undertaking that Google began previous year when it rounded up reservations for hotels and flights to a trip timeline for users signed into their Google accounts and who received Gmail confirmation.

"You told us you wanted a rating based on what your app is today, not what it was years ago, and we agree", said Milena Nikolic, an engineering director leading Google Play Console, who detailed the changes at the Google I/O Developer conference today. Google Hotels does something similar for places to stay. Now, it's rolling out on the desktop, and there's even more functionality in the pipeline. For booking your travel plans, you will need the internet.

When you go to google.com/travel, you can now make edits directly to your trips timeline, and in a few weeks you'll be able to manually add new reservations as well. It will now pinpoint popular neighborhoods nearby and what they may be famous for.

Google tracks your recent searches, saved places and flights and adds them automatically to your trips if you're signed into your Google Account, and Google plans to add items you viewed and saved, including hotels, to your trips so you don't have to reinvent the wheel or keep track of all the details yourself. For instance, when you have a booking for an inn or a café, looking that business up on Google Maps will show your reservation time and date, and clicking it shows your affirmation receipt.
