If you travel a lot, you must be familiar with the delays because of your plane being stuck somewhere else or because the weather at your local or arrival airport isn’t ideal. So you have made a habit to check on your incoming flight, even when the airline tells you everything is perfect, and the FAA’s airspace status pages.
But if you are not a recurrent flier or don’t want to go through that process. In that case, you’ll be happy to hear that Google declared that its Assistant will soon proactively alert you on your phone when its algorithms foresee that your flight is going to be late. This feature is rolling out now and should be available to all users in the next few weeks.
It should be noted that the delay predictions from Google aren’t new. It introduced its first iteration of this in January. At the time, it didn’t actually alert you of those delays, though. You first had to search for your flight. So unless you knew this feature existed and you probably never saw it in action.
Google says it mostly uses machine learning algorithms trained on historic flight data to predict delays. In addition, though, the company also clearly looks at some other information, given that it knows about delays of incoming flights, too.
