Ask Google For Your Flights, Reservations, Package Delivery Info


Google will son be able to provide you information on your flight's status on the go or quickly see whether your package would arrive on time.

Soon you'll be able to find this info instantly in Google Search if it's in your Gmail, Google Calendar or Google+. For example, you'll be able to ask or type, "What's my flight status?" or "When will my package arrive?" Over the next several days, Google will be rolling this out to all U.S., English-speaking users on desktop, tablet and smartphone, with voice search (so you don't have to type). Here are just a few of the time savers that will be available this week, with more to come:

- Flights: Ask Google "Is my flight on time?" to get info on your upcoming flights and live status on your current flights.

- Reservations: Ask for "my reservations" to see your dining plans or "my hotel" to get your hotel name and address. With one tap, you can get driving or public transit directions straight there, saving you lots of steps.

- Purchases: Ask for "my purchases," and you'll get the status of your current orders, so you know whether your mom's birthday present will arrive on time.

- Plans: Ask Google "What are my plans for tomorrow?" to see a summary of upcoming flights, hotels, restaurant reservations and events.

- Photos: Say "Show me my photos from Thailand" to see the photos you uploaded to Google+. You can also ask for "my photos of sunsets" if you want to show off the shots you've taken over the year; Google will try to automatically recognize the type of photo you're asking for.

Google has been offering this kind of info - flights, reservations, appointments and more - for more than a year in Google Now. Now that it's in Google Search.

Voice search will be available on the desktop through Google's Chrome browser and on tablets and smartphones via the Google's Search App for iOS and Android, Google said.

The feature relies on Google's work on contextual voice recognition and its Knowledge Graph, the company's database of people, places and things that helps deliver results for words with different meanings in a different context.

Google says that the information is secure, via encrypted connection, and visible only to you when you're signed in to Google. Likewise, you can also control whether you want the service on or off. Whenever you don't want to see it, click the globe icon at the top of the search results page to turn it off for that search session. To turn it off permanently, visit the "Private results" section in search settings.
