Thanks to modern personal assistants, you can carry out thousands of tasks through the simple act of speaking. This technology is not exempt from implementation in the travel industry, which has been permeated by the digital transformation, which gives travelers the possibility to choose among thousands of experiences and to live something more personalized.
Through Trips, the personal search engine assistant and the integration with voice recognition tools, KAYAK helps you to remember the dates of your next flights, recommends the fastest route to get to the airport or accommodation and indicates the dates in which it is best to book a ticket.
The tool offers an interactive and user-friendly experience when planning a trip. The company is using the latest technology in speech recognition to offer travelers memorable experiences.
“At KAYAK, we work to offer travelers memorable experiences from beginning to end. Every trip begins with a search, which is why we use new technologies such as augmented reality, artificial intelligence and voice technology to improve those experiences and offer the traveler valuable information, in real time,” said Guillermo Stockdale, Country Manager, KAYAK Chile.
Among the features Kayak has to offer exists one that can assign a quick action to your smartphone’s virtual assistant by using our own voice. The user will be able to use this tool to record a phrase, such as “Travel Plans”, which when said in the virtual assistant, will open the KAYAK app and give you the information you are looking for.
We can also customize different shortcuts so that, for example, they work as an alarm to let you know when your flight date and time is coming up and to help you anticipate the weather at a particular time of your trip. This is done from our own virtual assistant’s configuration, which allows us to make the most appropriate configuration, according to our interests.
The tool is currently available in the KAYAK application for all devices with the iOS 12 and newer operating systems. KAYAK helps millions of travelers around the world make better travel decisions. KAYAK, the leading travel search engine in the world, searches other websites and shows travelers the information they need to find the perfect flight, hotel or rental car for them.
