Google Assistant is getting smarter every day as the company is announcing newer features for the voice assistant at CES 2019. Google has mentioned them in their new blog post which explains how users can make use of the Assistant for checking-in on flights, view your boarding pass and also book hotels in advance right from the comfort of your seat.
The company aims to improve the user experience at airports and make it more hassle-free by letting users get all the information on their flights right on their phones. Also, users will get the important updates on boarding and departure 24 hours prior to their flights without having to keep waiting at the airport for hearing these announcements.
You can command the Assistant by saying “Hey Google, check in to my flight” and it will ask you for your checked bags. Once you are at the airport waiting to board the plane, “Hey Google, show me my boarding pass” will help you rightfully so.
Apart from this, Google Assistant has made it convenient for travellers to books hotels:
If you have a hotel in mind, the Assistant can help you book a room through a quick conversation on your phone. You could say, “Hey Google, I’d like to book the Cambria Hotel in New York on January 12th” to view availability, different pricing options and then easily reserve a room using your existing Google Pay credentials.
We’re working with a range of companies to enable fast, simple hotel bookings, from hotels like Choice Hotels, AccorHotels and InterContinental Hotels Group to online travel agencies and partners such as Priceline, Expedia, Mirai and Travelclick – an Amadeus company.
