The company said on Tuesday it was rolling out simplified free trip planning at google.com/travel, linking Google's Flights, Hotels and Trips services on desktop.

The search engine of google remains the way that the provider earns billions of dollars by selling digital ads which are targeted at the interests that individuals reveal through their research requests. You can start using the new portal by typing in a destination search term or "hotels in London" to access a wealth of information in one go.

Tapping the picker lets you switch to a different account, add a new one, manage email addresses on your device, but most importantly, it has that new "Manage your Google Account" option.

Instant Experiences - This is completely supported, ensuring you need to upload a single artifact for the installed app and Google Play Instant experiences. For instance, when you have a booking for an inn or a café, looking that business up on Google Maps will show your reservation time and date, and clicking it shows your affirmation receipt.
