Travellers can now ask their Google Assistant if there’s a flight delay or even find out what’s causing the delay.

Google travel product management vice-president Richard Holden says the feature is meant to help travellers stay up to date, due to the increase in delayed flights over the busy year end period.

This feature will also be improved over the next few weeks as Assistant will begin proactively notifying users on their phone if it predicts a flight delay and will divulge the reason if it finds out why.

Users can ask questions like, “Hey Google, is my flight on time?” or “Hey Google, what’s the status of the American Airlines flight from Philadelphia to Denver?”.

He says Google uses historic flight status data combined with machine learning to make these predictions in advance of airlines confirming delays.

Other new features rolled out for the holidays include more geographically specific information for travellers exploring a new city, which are available by swiping up on the Explore tab, found at the bottom of the map screen.

“Whether you’re coming off a holiday high or in need of relaxation after all the hustle and bustle, the beginning of the new year is a prime time to think about your next trip,” says Holden.

In addition to tools that show historic flight price trends, top cities, hotel deals and popular things to do, Google will now show upcoming public holidays and school breaks, so users can plan around those dates.

This feature is available on both Android and iOS phones, though Apple users will need to download the Google Assistant app.
