Google Now is always introducing new features and the newest feature that’s been added is the ability to receive updates on flight prices that you have searched for.
I have to be honest, I had never heard of Google Flights before tonight. However, I am a big Google Now user so I will definitely start using it from now on. The last time I flew, I loved the fact that Google Now reminded me when to leave for the airport and automatically displayed my boarding passes (with QR codes) which could be scanned prior to boarding.
This new automatic feature allows Google to ascertain your intentions and presents the useful info on that basis. If you use Google Flights to look for flights, Google will make a note and drop a card into your Google Now screen to let you know when the price of that flight changes.
I wasn’t able to replicate this yet on my device but here’s an example of what it will look like:
As always, this feature will roll out slowly and may start appearing as a Google Now card, providing of course you use the Google Flights website to search for flights.
Has anyone used Google Flights to search for flights or have you seen a Google Now flight price monitor card show up yet?
