TripIt, a travel organizing app owned by Concur, now allows users to ask Google Assistant to instantly get details about upcoming trips. TripIt users can now ask Google Assistant for their flight summary, information about the weather, aircraft and much more. TripIt Pro customers will also be able to get real-time updates on their flight status.
How it works:
“Hey Google, what’s the weather like at my destination?”
Travelers can connect TripIt to Google Assistant through the Google Assistant app. Once connected, the app can be opened by saying “Ok Google, talk to TripIt.” Note that TripIt will only provide information on the next flight within a TripIt account.
Questions TripIt users can ask:
• What is my flight summary?
• What time is my flight?
• What is my airline?
• What type of aircraft am I flying on?
• What is the weather like at my destination?
• What seat do I have?
• What is the duration of my flight?
• When do I arrive?
TripIt Pro users can also ask:
• What is my flight’s status?
• When should I leave for the airport?
• What terminal is my flight in?
• Where is my gate?
The service with Google Assistant is available to all U.S. and Canada TripIt users with a Google Assistant enabled device such as Google Home, Google Home Mini, Google Home Max and enabled Android devices. A subscription to TripIt Pro ($49/year) is required to get real-time flight status. Visit www.tripit.com/pro.
Companies use TripIt Pro as a perk to employees, although their travel is often managed through Concur TripLink.
