Google Is Testing Its Upcoming Travel App


Google Is Testing Its Upcoming App About Travel And Trips

The tip comes from Dutch website Android World and demonstrates an application that appears to blend Inbox with Google Now. The app is supposed to be called Trips, and 9to5Google reported that it's being established by members of Google Maps' Local Guides programme, a community-driven virtual guide for tourists.

The app goes through users' emails and messages to organize and bundle important documents and even offers suggestions. The home screen reportedly features older as well as upcoming trips and users are also at liberty to manually add information.

Tapping the little "+" button at the bottom right permits users to create trips, and choosing the destination presents users the option to learn about accommodation, transportation, and popular attractions. Users can also reportedly save locations and add them to their bundle.

Since Google has access to a huge database of local information, the Trips app becomes handy when we reach our destination. Google advises not only moving information it also suggests the things we can do and places we should visit during our trip. As we said earlier all this information is available for you offline. The Google Trips app will come out of beta and into the Play Store sometime later this year.



Tap a location to see details on reservations, food and drink, activities, saved places, public transport, and other instructions, 9to5Google said, not to mention information on top tourist destinations and tailored locations. Currently in testing for Android, there will "likely" be an iOS version, as well.

"We love to travel and are hard at work dreaming up new ways to make the travel experience hassle-free. While we do that, sit tight and keep on using our amazing tools like Google Flights, Hotel Search, and Destinations on Google to plan your next adventure," says Google.

The news comes as Google on Thursday started rolling out the latest Photos for Android app update. Redesigned for a faster, more convenient search experience, the app now contains a search bar. Google Photos also deals the ability to automatically customize movies with music and additional videos and photos. Plus, users can now delete or rename device folders, as well as manage photos on SD cards by making a new folder and copying and moving images. 



"These changes make Google Photos faster and easier to use than ever before, and will be coming soon to iOS," the company wrote in a Google+ post.
