Google introduces flight tracking system in search results, using your booking emails
Essentially a user can type “my flights” (it works the same for an airline name) as a search query into Google and the engine will scan the user’s email for flight booking emails.
By special invitation only at the moment, but Google is testing a new service which integrates content from a user’s Gmail account when they perform queries in natural search.
So what, you might say.
On the one hand, combining the two makes a fair amount of sense – Google is integrating as much content from a user’s Plus account and their subsequent social circle into search results already, so this is a logical extension.
