Google Maps Set To Get Major Travel Upgrade

Study finds Android smartphones littered with suspicious & # 39; bloatware & # 39

Google's moves to bolster its position in travel is created to drive further searches and potential "higher-qualified leads" for its partner companies, such as airlines and hotels - "so people will recognize Google as a place where I do travel research", Holden said.

"What we've noticed over time is that trip planning is done over many weeks or many months", said Richard Holden, Google's vice president of travel product management. We can find some of the information related to travel from Google Search itself.

Your Android phone allows access to millions of apps and games that you can download whenever you feel like it via the Google Play Store.

The new service may help Google earn more referral income from advertisers such as airlines and hotels, though prices for such ads have fallen in recent years.

The company gave no specific information about how this live web landing page will impact the unreleased app. Google Trips app will act as a competitor to the app TripIt, which also shows itineraries offline.

The best feature of Google Trip will be that it will stop you from switching between mobile and laptop for your bookings.

Google says it's getting serious about services for travellers.

"We're now rolling this out on desktop as well".

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. Google intends Maps to be the ultimate go-to for all information while you travel, as your trips - including reservations for hotels and restaurants - will soon be accessible in Google Maps. Google will put hotels, flights, things to do, places to eat, weather, packages and more right in a central place.
