Google has introduced updates to its existing “Google Flights” service that will now let users book a hotel at their travel destination directly from Search. Earlier, the service helped users predict flight delays and find the cheapest fare by using machine learning capabilities. According to Engadget, the company might introduce more integration to help users with the entire travel process.

According to Google, it also added improved price filtering, easier to find information on amenities, along with the new booking feature. “There are some new interface features that help you check travel options on your mobile phone, too. Over the next few days, you’ll see a ‘Hotels’ option to tap at the top of a ‘Google Flight’ search page,” the report said.

If users want to search for hotels first, they could flip over to the ‘Flights’ tab as well to check prices and book air travel. In addition, one could search by destination, then look up flights and hotels from there. A simple tap on “More Destinations” at the top left of the search results and see more places to go.

“If you’ve booked travel via Google or have reservations in your Gmail, you’ll be able to see it all in the new private ‘Your Trips’ section,” the company said. A user could also e-mail these details directly from “Your Trips”. In case of offline access, the information would show up in the “Google Trips” app.
