Google Assistant becomes virtual travel companion


Google has rolled out a new feature in which flight, hotel and car rental bookings are now part of Google Assistant‘s settings.

When users access their travel reservations via the Google app or the Home app, they will see a new Reservations item under account settings. Currently, the setting will display flight reservations, but it could add hotels and train reservations down the road. When users tap on the reservation, they get details such as the ticket number, confirmation number and other information about the trip.

In February, Google started enabling consumers to book hotel and flight reservations using their smartphones, directly from a mobile Google search — without ever having to leave their search results list. Results would include photos of hotels, as well as the option to customize for dates and prices.
