It can locate a flight based on the time you want, both outbound and inbound, with the required stop numbers and so o n.

Sending Timely Alerts
You can use the tool on your smartphone to get timely alerts when the price of tickets will probably skyrocket. It will send pop ups related to prices of some flights. All routes are not covered and users cannot control the routes and notifications, but it is still very useful to travellers, as they can know how much time they have for booking their tickets before the prices start to jump.
Search Locations and Flight Price
If you are not sure exactly where to go, you can click on the Flights tab after typing in Flights to USA. You will see the whole continent popping up and also see the prices alongside. You can then compare the prices and see the cost of landing at New York or Boston or anywhere else in the region. There are also other filters available, such as the name of the airline, the flight duration, the price and other criteria.

Google will select destinations based on your search history and also on popular destinations. There is a bar graph showing when you can get the cheapest tickets.
Best Flight Options
The box for best flights will inform you about the flight that offers the best combination of prices and speed. This makes it easy for travellers to pick up a flight, as they don’t have to decide between opting for a nonstop flight and a layover one. The top picks of Google are highlighted in green. It is almost as if it is you personal travel agent asking you to take that flight.
Indicating Lowest Fares
Users can see the prices for their chosen trip for every day of that particular month. The cheapest days can be seen in green and the bar graph shows you whether the prices are likely to drop or rise with time.
