Google plans to bring all its travel related services under one umbrella

Google Maps Set To Get Major Travel Upgrade

Trips provides easy access to Google's powerhouse travel tools, including flight and hotel search, while featuring both your confirmed reservations and whatever you've been considering in your searches.

In the coming few months, Google also plans to make accessible your trip information, including hotel and restaurant reservations, in Google Maps as well.

On Apple TV (and other places)
When we asked when other TV brands would get the app, Apple declined to comment beyond saying "it will come in the future". In the Home app on the iPhone , tap the house button in the upper-left corner, and under Speakers, tap Software Update.


Building on some of the features introduced past year, Google now makes it possible to edit your trip timeline directly from the travel hub, and the ability to manually add reservations is coming in a few weeks as well. Unlike travel agencies such as Expedia or Priceline, Google doesn't directly sell travel products such as hotel rooms or airline tickets.

Now Google Maps is set to get a major update with the inclusion of expanded travel data, among the upgrades will be the ability to make hotel and restaurant reservations when one is logged on.

"Rolling out to all advertisers globally later this year, Discovery ads are a new way to reach people across Google properties in the moments when they're open to discovering your products and services", Prabhakar Raghavan, Senior Vice President, Ads and Commerce, Google wrote in a blog-post on Tuesday.

The ads would be displayed on the "Discover" section of the homepage in a news feed layout and would be algorithmically personalised. Trip reservations will still automatically be added, with information pulled from confirmations for flights and hotels in your Gmail account. "Any trip content you have will be featured on that page". Since Google tracks these searches, you may then find an ad for something related inside Discover. They have also now added a feature that will point out popular neighborhoods near where you're staying and what they are famous for.

As you'd hope, there's the option to opt-out of all of this if you'd rather not have Google as your personal activity planner. And because Google really wants to ensure you're being served relevant content, you'll also see ads when browsing videos on YouTube.
