price drops gpluss

Today, Google announced an update for its search app for Android that adds airfare price drop alerts to your list of Now cards. Currently, only available in the US, this new feature likely monitors flights that you’ve been searching for and notifies you when a price drop has occurred.

From there, a user taps the Google Now card and is redirected to Flight Search where they’re able to book their trip. In order to take advantage of this new feature, you’ll need to make sure that you have the latest version of the Google app, which is currently available at the Play Store. With the holiday season quickly approaching and travel plans ready to start booming, it’s likely that smartphones and tablets will soon be covered in discounted flight cards.
