At a Glance preps shortcuts to airport and transit schedules

With this month’s March Feature Drop, Google finally rolled out Cross Device Timers on Pixel phones. At a Glance is now readying a pair of location proximity features when you’re near an airport or transit station.

About APK Insight: In this “APK Insight” post, we’ve decompiled the latest version of an application that Google uploaded to the Play Store. When we decompile these files (called APKs, in the case of Android apps), we’re able to see various lines of code within that hint at possible future features. Keep in mind that Google may or may not ever ship these features, and our interpretation of what they are may be imperfect. We’ll try to enable those that are closer to being finished, however, to show you how they’ll look in the case that they do ship. With that in mind, read on.

Today, At a Glance uses “Flights from Gmail” to show “Travel” information, like which baggage claim to go to after landing. 

Google app 14.11, currently in beta, reveals work on “Near Airport” to “See Arrivals Schedule.” When you’re close to an airport  (e.g., to pick somebody up), At a Glance might show a simple shortcut that takes you to an airport’s Arrivals page. This could be as simple as linking to the airport’s website, or partnering with a third-party service.

There’s also “Near Transit Station” today to “See Arrival and Departure times.” At a Glance could detect when you’re near a bus or train stop to surface the appropriate schedule. This could just be a shortcut to the existing capability in Google Maps.

Another possibility is that Google will directly show the next arrival/departure, but the existing At a Glance UI is not well suited for that. It would also be hard to determine what to show if there are multiple lines.
