Airports can get hectic at this time, but Google Assistant is here to help: It will now notify you when it predicts flight delays.On Monday, Google announced in a blog post that the new alert feature will be available to users in the next few weeks. Google Assistant will show predicted flight delays on smartphones, and travelers can ask questions such as, “Hey Google, what’s the status of the American Airlines flight from Denver to Philadelphia?” Or “Hey Google, is my flight on time?” Google Assistant will also tell you why your flight is potentially delayed in the alert message.Photo Credit: GoogleThis isn’t the first time that Google has provided flight delay predictions. Earlier this year, Google would show travelers flight delay predictions after they searched for their flight statuses. Google says it uses a combination of historic flight status data and machine learning to form these predictions before airlines confirm delays. However, you can now directly ask Google Assistant about your flight, instead of searching for your flight on Google first.In addition to flight delay predictions, Google will also roll out other handy traveling features for Google Flights and Google Maps.Photo Credit: GoogleFor Google Flights, you can now see what’s specifically included in your ticket price.
