Excerpt from Tnooz
Google has begun adding a few tricks to its flights and hotels metasearch on both desktop and mobile.
All of them have been pioneered elsewhere. But their adoption by Google may bring their usage to a wider audience, given the search giant’s mammoth popularity.
Users can now choose to track price changes for date and route combination on specific flights. Notifications are sent either by email or Google Now cards (to Android devices).
The tool will appear within the next month in the 26 countries where Google Flights is offered.
More filters for hotel search
Google is adding filters that are based on more granular shopping needs, such as hotel rating or rate range, with one tap on their mobile devices. This functionality debuts in the US now, and will be added worldwide soon.
