Google Assistant’s new features make it more useful for travelers
Google Assistant can now help you check-in to your flight, and save and retrieve your boarding pass. Domestic passengers in the US can say, “Hey Google, check in to my flight” on Android or iOS and Assistant will take care of the necessary steps. It’ll also notify you when the check-in facility becomes available, so you can use your voice or do it manually.
Plus, Google Assistant will help you book your hotel room in the US too. You can say, “Hey Google, I’d like to book the Cambria Hotel in New York on January 12th”, to see pricing and availability, and pay through Google Pay. Google has partnered with chains like Choice Hotels, AccorHotels and InterContinental Hotels Group, as well as travel services such as Priceline, Expedia, Mirai, and Travelclick to offer a wide range of options.
