All users need to do, is create a Siri shortcut by tapping on the 'Add to Siri' option, available on both the apps. Once added, Siri will start updating them with their flight or train running status in real time. Additionally, ixigo flights app users can ask Siri about their trip details based on upcoming travel plans and also get ixigo money balance updates.
With 20 million monthly active users, ixigo helps travellers across India, plan and manage nearly 4 million trips every month. It is the first travel player in India to launch the Siri shortcuts support feature on its apps, further simplifying the lives of travellers. This feature is currently available on the iOS12 version of the ixigo flights app and ixigo train app.
"With the launch of Siri Shortcuts for iOS12, ixigo has been featured on both the App Store and apple.com, making this a very proud moment for all of us! At ixigo, our constant endeavor is to make travel planning seamless for our users," said ixigo CTO and co-founder, Rajnish Kumar.
The integration of Siri Shortcuts for iOS12 with our flight and train apps is just one example of how we strive to use cutting-edge technology to bring travel planning tools to your fingertips. Why open the app to know your flight or train status when all you have to do is ask Siri?," added Kumar.
