Holidaymakers will have their travel documentation accessible via voice command thanks to Hotels.com integrating the new Siri Shortcut functions into its app.
According to the latest data, almost a quarter of global travelers (22%) use voice commands to search and book their travel. Hotels.com is now tapping into this growing trend by adopting the new technology – featured as part of the new Apple iOS12 release – in their app.
To make use of this new function, customers can open their booking in the app, click the ‘Add to Siri’ button and record a voice command that’s relevant to their stay. Upon arrival, customers can find the address of their hotel, see a map of its location or find the check in time by repeating the voice command.
Daniel Craig, Vice President of Mobile at Hotels.com brand said: “The Hotels.com Siri Shortcut takes the hassle out of travelling, by surfacing the key information you need in just one voice command. Handsfree travel is a growing trend and this new feature is perfect for today’s on-the-go travelers, who demand instant information at their fingertips, or should I now say at the tip of their tongue.”
