New Google Trips App Could Simplify Travel for Business -- and Pleasure
Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL) recently launched a new smartphone app that can help you plan and organize your trip. The app, better known as Google Trips, automatically pulls details about your trip from your Gmail account and goes ahead to recommend “local gems,” attractions and restaurants based on data collected from other travelers. Stefan Frank, Google Trips Product Manager writes in a post on Google’s Official Blog that you can use the app to download itineraries and reservations so you no longer have to worry about internet or cellular coverage on arrival to your destination.
Google is combining what it knows (which is a lot) about what attractions and activities are generally popular in your travel destination with what it knows about you. This results in a ton of information that the company says will help you maximize opportunities on your business — or personal — trip.
