Google Trips launched last year to help you keep your trip info organized so that you can spend more time enjoying your destination, and now Google is updating the app to make it an even better travel companion.
The Google Trips app now lets you manually update a trip with new details on flight, hotel, car, and restaurant reservations. Just tap the “+” button in the bottom right corner of the Reservations section and enter your info, like a flight number or name of your car rental. Also included is a section for free-form notes if you’d prefer to go that route.
Google Trips is also gaining support train and bus reservations. All of your past and upcoming train and bus rides will be organized for you in the app alongside your flight, hotel, car, and restaurant reservations.
Finally, if you’d like to share the reservation details of a trip, you can do so by tapping the arrow button in the Reservations tab. The recipient will get an email with all of your details and see them in the app, too.
These are some nice additions to the Google Trips app. Lots of folks still travel by bus and train, so it’s good that those travel methods are finally included, and the ability to quickly share your reservation info can be helpful if you’ve traveling with friends that aren’t using the app or you want to keep your loved ones up-to-date on your travel.
