facebook Twitter google skype whatsapp Launches ‘Voice Search’ Feature launched a 'voice search' feature.(Picture only for representational purpose) is now making it easier to search and find flight related information on its Android and iOS mobile application. Yatra has introduced Voice Search to simplify the user experience while booking domestic and international flights.

With smartphone prices crashing and penetration increasing rapidly, the Indian traveller of today is very comfortable making flight bookings via their mobile and the Voice Search feature will go a long way in making the experience a very easy and seamless one.

To use the new Voice Search one can simply tap on the microphone icon appearing at the top right on the mobile phone and speak out the travel details, e.g. ‘I want a flight from Delhi to Mumbai for two adults next Tuesday’.

The flight results with all the options will appear instantly. Voice Search is particularly useful for long queries that would otherwise require plenty of details to be typed in, such as number of travellers, number of adults or children.

Popular holidays are also synchronised into the voice search, so one can search for ‘flight from Delhi to Sydney for two adults on Christmas’ and instantly get all the available flight options for two adults from Delhi to Sydney on 25th December.

Commenting on the development, Sharat Dhall, COO (B2C), says, “Over the last 18 months, we have seen a significant increase in searches and bookings via mobiles and hence the introduction of a feature like Voice Search to make it easier for the mobile user to search and book flights. We think it will play a transformational role in the way flight bookings are made.”
