Have a Google Home? Are you a frequent traveler? Well, Google is about to make finding your preferred flight more seamless than ever. Beginning today, you can search for flights and track prices through Google Flights with your Google Home device.

Here’s how it works: Get the device’s attention with the normal “OK Google,” and then ask it to find you fares to your destination on specific dates. Check out the GIF below to see how it works:

As you can see, Google Home will allow you to both search for a new flight and track prices. If you choose to track prices on a route on specific dates, you’ll be able to get email updates. In addition to the new search and tracking capabilities, Google Home can assist you in planning other parts of your trip, such as finding out if you need a visa, the best time to visit a destination, what traffic is like when you’re leaving for the airport and more.

While it’s certainly cool to be able to search for flights without using a phone or computer, you can’t yet book the through Google Home. Once you find a flight that you’d like to purchase, you have to complete booking on a device that’ll allow you to do so.
