Google wants to make your next vacation a little less stressful, and it's doing so with a new personal tour guide called Google Trips. Now, the new Google Trips app can come to your rescue.

I made a decision to test "Day Plans", a feature for planning activities based on how much time you have and what you want to see.

Google Trips is going places.

On each city's screen, a wide array of colorful cards help users navigate the app; such as "Day Plans", "Saved Places", "Food & Drink", "Getting around", "Things to do", "Reservations", and more. The entire app is available offline, which users can access by simply tapping the "Download" button under each trip to save it to their phone. Sharing features are baked right into the app to enable users to get their friends and family in on the fun as well. Google Trips reads you Gmail emails, so every time you make a reservation, if you received confirmation on that email account, then it will show up in the Google Trips app under "Reservations" category.

Today Google released a new travel app on iOS and Android the leverages the tech titan's vast library of data and consumer products. It offers automatic trip organization, day plans, details on nearby attractions and more.

This includes reservations for flights, auto rentals, hotels and restaurants.

We provided a look at Google Trips back in April, and the service has been in testing in the months since. And Google wants to reduce that stress with the new app. Similar to Google search, it has an I'm Feeling Lucky recommendation for your day.

Find out when you're near popular attractions (and whether they're open) as well as reviews and ratings from other travelers.

For this reason, most consumers rely on their smartphones to get around in unfamiliar places.

The update, which has already launched in Japan and will soon come to other countries, translates information about local businesses and facilities around you, from doctor's offices to supermarkets.
