Google Flights to take on Hopper with predictive pricing Google's flight search service Google Flights just got a little better, adding predictive pricing allowing you to see if you should wait to buy those tickets.
The service now tells you when prices are expected to increase (based on historical patterns), tracks price changes to flights you are tracking and lets you search for cheap destinations based on your criteria.

Hopper, a small but popular startup available on Android and iOS, has been offering similar predictive pricing since launch last year. Google Flights may prove to be more popular given that it works on mobile and desktop.

In addition, Google says it is updating its Hotels service, as well.

Yet another lame app that will fall through the cracks way down the road and be forgotten.
