Google's new travel app Trips launched in India

Google recently launched a new app, Trips. It's developed to help users plan their travel better while they are on vacation. It also includes features like travel itinerary, reservation details and maps. And now, Trips has been launched in India. Google Trips lets users plan, organize and manage their trips in a more efficient manner. Each trip consists of some key information categories such as day plans, reservations, things to do, food & drinks and more. Users can customize their daily itinerary with places they want to visit and detail how long it will take them to reach their destination(s).
The app comes with a unique 'offline' feature which enables all trip details and itineraries to be downloaded for offline use. Users just have to tap the 'Download' button under each trip to save it to their smartphones. This can be quite helpful as users may not always have access to data connectivity while travelling. Google Trips gathers all information like flight itineraries, hotel reservations and so on from a user's tied-in Gmail account. The app contains an agenda, suggestions for popular things to do around the areas being visited, food & drink suggestions and more. It offers various day plans featuring most popular daily itineraries for the top 200 cities in the world.
Furthermore, the app has a 'magic wand' icon at the bottom right for recognizing popular areas nearby. It can notify when the user is near a popular attraction, as well as provide information such as ratings and reviews from other travellers in the area.
Recently, Google announced that it will be rolling out an update for its messaging app Allo. The update is expected to bring a host of new features to the app. According to a report on Android Police website, with the new update, Allo will get support for a split-screen mode on devices running Android 7.0 Nougat.
Users will be able to chat in one window and use another app simultaneously on the same screen. Along with this, they will be able to reply directly from the notifications instead of opening the app to do so. The update also adds a monochrome theme to the app, which can be enabled from the Settings menu.
