Google has quietly discontinued Trips, its travel planning app for Android and iOS, as of August 5th.

Much of the functionality from the app is being incorporated into Maps and Search. A Google Support page describes how to take advantage of these features now that they have migrated over to Small Google Maps iconGoogle Maps and Small Google Search iconGoogle Search, though as the page notes, this data will still require you to be signed into your Google Account in order to access the data that you had saved in Trips while you're in Search.

The following features have been moved to Google Search:

Things to do in a destination: Find top attractions, popular experiences, dishes, neighborhoods, and more to start planning your trip by searching for things to do in your destination or go to google.com/travel and navigate to the "Explore" tab.
Trip reservations: To browse your past and upcoming reservations, search for my trips or go to google.com/travel. You’ll also be able to edit your trip details.
(Coming soon) Add / edit notes: Find your notes from the Google Trips app in your trips at google.com/travel. You’ll also be able to add or edit notes at the bottom of upcoming and past trips.
Saved places: You can find saved attractions, flights, and soon hotels in your upcoming and past trips.

And these following features have been migrated to Google Maps (these require the Google Maps app on your Android and iOS device):

Things to do in a destination: Find top attractions, popular experiences, dishes, neighborhoods, and more to start planning your trip by searching for things to do in your destination or going to google.com/travel and navigating to the "Explore" tab.
Trip reservations: Browse your past and upcoming reservations by searching for my trips or going to google.com/travel. You’ll also be able to edit your trip details.
(Coming soon) Add / edit notes: Find your notes from the Google Trips app in your trips at google.com/travel. You’ll also be able to add or edit notes at the bottom of upcoming and past trips.
Saved places: Find saved attractions, flights, and soon hotels in your upcoming and past trips.

Unless otherwise noted, these features are available now in Google Search and Google Maps, as Small Google Trips iconGoogle Trips is no longer available for use.
