Google describes its new app as "a personalized tour guide in your pocket."

Google just launched a new app designed to take the hassle out of travel planning.

Called Google Trips, it’s free and available for Apple iOS and Android devices.

In a blog post that formally introduced the app this week, Google describes it as “a personalized tour guide in your pocket”:

“Each trip [that you plan in the app] contains key categories of information, including day plans, reservations, things to do, food and drink, and more, so you have everything you need at your fingertips.”

Features of Google Trips include the ability to:

  • Plan a day “like magic”: The app can automatically plan out a half-day or full-day trip for you, or it can help you plan a day around attractions that you already know you want to visit. If you don’t like the attractions the app suggests, you can tap a “magic wand” to see additional attractions in the area and pin the ones you like. Each time you tap the magic wand, the app gives you an updated itinerary, enabling you to create a customized plan in minutes, according to Google.
  • Find all your trip reservations in one place: The app automatically gathers your flight, hotel and other travel bookings from Gmail and the Inbox by Gmail app and organizes them into individual trips. So you won’t have to search through emails to find reservations, and all your reservations for a given trip will be in the app.
  • Use the app offline: The app is available offline, so you can access it even when you don’t have an internet connection.
