Sharing is caring!

If you haven’t heard about it until now, you should know that last month Google released a new app called Google Trips. This is meant to make your job easier when you plan a trip, and it is based on information it takes from your Gmail account and other data, such as reviews from other people and other apps, such as Destinations. The goal Google declared it has is to bring you a personalized tour guide you can hold in your pocket.

They explained that they wanted to decrease the hassle and the stress of planning a trip and bring to the users a helpful tool to use in vacations, or at least this is what Stefan Frank, product manager for this app, wrote on the company’s blog.

The possibilities are endless with this app which equals the efforts of four regular travel apps, but there are a couple of things you should know before starting using it.

One of the things you should be aware of is that you can only use the app to its fullest if you are using your Gmail account. If you are doing so, simply set your destination city (or cities) and let it do its magic. You can see that it has 6 features:

– Reservations

– Things to Do

– Saved Places

– Day Plans

– Food & Drink

– Getting Around

Remember that it also saves data if you download the trip to your phone and you will be able to check it even if you’re not connected to the Internet, which might happen often when you’re in a foreign country. But perhaps the greatest advantage of this app is the fact that it’s fully customizable. You have an excellent assistant here that lets you change dates, times, places and activities as it suits you best.
