Google Assistant will soon check into your flights

Google Assistant is receiving an update which will let you check into your flights just by saying "Hey Google, check in to my flight." You will no longer have to dig through emails or screenshots to find your confirmation number in front of the kiosk. Google Assistant will work with airlines to seamlessly complete your check-in for you.

The service will first launch on United Airlines' domestic flights. Google Assistant will also be able to retrieve and save your boarding pass, and proactively remind you to check into your flight when it's ready. You don't have to install separate airline apps to get these features, either.

Additionally, Google Assistant will also book you a hotel room via Choice Hotels, AccorHotels, InterContinental Hotels Group, Priceline, Expedia, Mirai, and Travelclick. You can also keep your itinerary, restaurant shortlists and group expense notes under Assistant's purview, as it's getting support for Google Keep,, Bring! and Todoist.

Google has still to reveal an exact timeline for the rollout of this feature but has plans to expand it to other airlines and hotel booking services in the future. Fortunately, users who frequently travel domestically via United Airlines will be able to experience the convenience of having Assistant handle most of the hassle of travel.
