Now you can instantly ask TripIt questions like when you should leave for the airport or what time you land
PRESS RELEASE — SAN FRANCISCO — TripIt® from Concur®, the world’s highest-rated travel-organizing app, today released a new TripIt skill for Amazon Alexa. TripIt users can now ask Alexa to instantly get details about an upcoming flight.
“Now when you’re home and preparing for your trip, you don’t have to pick up your phone or laptop to get the flight information you need,” said Jen Moyse, director of product at TripIt from Concur. “We want to help you make the most of your time as a busy traveler, wherever you are.”
With the new skill, TripIt users can ask Alexa about their flight summary, information about the weather, aircraft and much more. TripIt Pro customers will also be able to get real-time updates on their flight status.
How it works:
“Alexa, what’s my departure time?”
