Google's got a new travel app, but it's not ready for the masses


Google’s cooking up a brand new journey app that mixes one of the best of Maps with Now, the corporate’s prescient private assistant. Besides Journeys, because it’s apparently referred to as, shouldn’t be fairly prepared for primetime (or the Google Play retailer) as of but. Information of the app’s existence comes by way of Dutch website AndroidWorld which obtained screenshots of Journeys from Native Guides customers, a group-pushed offshoot of Google Maps.

The app, which is purportedly in testing in the intervening time, works by trawling a consumer’s Gmail to create bundles of journey knowledge. So all your flight, lodge, eating and sightseeing reservations will probably be collected in a single handy and shareable package deal. Whereas Journeys is claimed to mechanically scour a consumer’s e-mail account to construct out an archive of previous and upcoming journey, it also needs to permit customers to manually construct out bundles and itineraries.

In fact, this being a Google app, there’s additionally a suggestion function that may supply strategies for issues to do close by, sights to see, locations to eat and even map out instructions utilizing numerous modes of transport. Journeys will even permit customers to go away suggestions and even submit pictures on locations of curiosity very similar to a dwelling guidebook. All that stated, there is no official phrase on when Google will launch Journeys to the general public, if in any respect. So in case you’re actually itching to get your arms on the app, your greatest guess is to join Native Guides and hope for a peek behind the beta curtain.
