Google Maps has previously added features to make travel planning part of your app experience as well. The reason behind this is that all users who are enrolled in the beta program will always be the first ones to access all of Google's latest and most important updates. However, there are some search topics where you get every information from Google.

The updated app ratings was one of numerous Google Play changes announced today, along with the public launch of dynamic delivery features, new APIs, refreshed Google Play Console data, custom listings and even "suggested replies" - like those found in Gmail, but for responding to Play Store user reviews. But what if you don't want Google recording your entire thought process as you plan? Google Hotels does something similar for places to stay. This is via the new platform from Google called Google Trips which can be accessed by Google.com/travel. Now, it's rolling out on the desktop, and there's even more functionality in the pipeline. In a few weeks time, Google says, there'll be support for manually adding new reservations as well.

Some highlights include the Google AI assistant and abilities, Android Q Beta 3, new Google aspects for the different apps (Google Play Store and Maps) and its search engine and the new Pixel 3 smartphone line.

Moreover, on the off chance that you track flight prices on a Google search, the landing page will likewise display updates for any progressions that happen. It will now pinpoint popular neighborhoods nearby and what they may be famous for. In the coming months, Google will make your hotel and restaurant reservations accessible from Maps, as well.

Recent searches, saved places and flights you're tracking are added automatically to your trips when you're signed into your Google Account.

Google may be commonly used as a verb for looking for information, but in the online travel world the technology giant isn't a go-to destination like Expedia, Priceline and TripAdvisor.
