Google Home now helps you track flight prices
The Google Home connected speaker continues to add new and handy features for its owners to explore. Today, it was revealed that it has been updated to give you prices for any airline flights you might want to take in the future. Not only that, but it can even track those prices and alert you if they go down so you can get the best deal.
According to a support page on Google’s site, you will need to turn on the speaker’s Personal Results to get information on any existing flights. Any info is pulled from the Gmail address that’s linked to the Google Account that was used to set up Google Home. You don’t need to turn on Personal Results to track flight prices.
You can then state, for example, “OK Google, how much are flights to New York City in three weeks?” After you get that information, it can then start tracking those flight prices for you. If the price goes down, you will get notifications through email or via Google Now cards.
There are lots of other airline flight information you can get via Google Home, such as the route schedule, or finding out what specific airlines fly to certain locations. You can also find out if a flight that you are already scheduled to be on will arrive or time or if it will be delayed.
Would you use Google Home to help you get a better price on an upcoming airplane flight?
