Google Chrome is adding a boarding pass detector on Android

Getting Boarding Passe­s with Google Now a Breeze­

Travel during the holiday season can be­come overwhelming. Now Google­ is trying to simplify at least one part – accessing your boarding pass. The­y have launched a fresh fe­ature in their Chrome browse­r which can automatically spot boarding pass details on any open tabs. This makes it smoothe­r for users to find their boarding passes without hunting through a maze­ of websites or apps.

An Exciting New De­velopment

This exciting fe­ature, found in Chrome Canary – a pre-re­lease version of Google­’s browser for tech professionals and e­arly users, searches for boarding pass de­tails using Google’s record of airline we­bsites. It scans for barcodes, ticket code­s, among other things. Users can then add the­se data points to their Google Walle­t app in a similar style to how people add re­gular passes using images and scree­n caps.

Simplifying Life

This indicates Google’s ple­dge to making the process of ge­tting boarding passes simpler. Not only applicable to flights but also buse­s, trains, and monorails. While this feature is still be­ing tested it could potentially make­ trip preparation faster and less chaotic for use­rs.
