Google has launched a new update for its ‘Trips’ app to add essential functionality, including the ability to manually add flight and hotel reservations in the app. The company has also added a feature where the app will automatically parse train and bus reservations from your Gmail inbox. The company launched the app back in September 2016 to help users plan their trips.

The app has received minor updates since the initial launch, but this update marks an essential feature addition for users who may rely on both online as well as offline means of reservation. The new update will start rolling out in coming days to Android and iOS users worldwide.

The app is being described as ‘Travel Planner’ as it works like a travel guide and itinerary maker that will pull up all the information like flight itineraries, hotel reservations and so on from your Gmail. You just need to tell the app, where you have to go, download the guide for offline use and it will start planning.

Google offers a variety of day plans including popular daily for the top 200 cities in the world. Google claims it has automatically assembled the most popular sights, attractions and even local gems into the full day’s tour, and all these are based on visits by other travellers.
