Trips is Google’s latest addition to Chrome’s powerful search tool. With Journeys, you no longer have to dig through your search history to revisit past web searches. Instead, Google does the hard work for you, grouping your past searches by topic or intent. You can have instant access to the information you need, the same day or weeks later.
How does Chrome Travel work?
Type a topic you previously searched for in Chrome’s search bar and click Resume your search.
From Chrome’s Settings menu, go to History > All History to see a list of relevant sites.
If you search for “travel,” Google will show you travel-related sites you’ve visited. Chrome organizes visits based on how often you visit particular web pages, so you’ll see the most relevant information first.
From there, you can explore suggested related searches at the bottom of the screen to delve deeper into the topic. Google emphasizes that you are in control of your data. So if you don’t like the idea of Google organizing your search history, you can disable visits to Chrome’s History page.
You can also delete specific activity groups or individual items, and you can always clear your browser history whenever you want. Also, your search groups are only saved to your device, not your Google Account.
For now, the tours will be available in English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, or Turkish for anyone using desktop Chrome. Google is also considering adding multi-device access to Journeys in the future.
When can I use Chrome Journey?
Tours should be available on your Chrome browser in the next few weeks. Google says it’s currently rolling out Journey, so the wait shouldn’t be too long.
Trying to recover previous searches often feels like an exercise in futility, so Journey is a welcome time-saving feature. It combines the best features of bookmarks and browser history, intuitively grouping searches by topics or intent. This allows you to explore topics that you previously researched.
Almost everyone uses Google services in some capacity, be it a search engine, cloud storage, or YouTube. And, for each service you use, a history of your Google activity is stored.
Your activities are also saved to your account, considering Google is the most popular search engine. But how do you access your Google Activity History? And how do you delete all your activity across multiple Google services?
Having your usage data not only lets you remember what you were looking for, but it also helps you detect unauthorized use in some cases.
It’s worth noting that the same set of steps used to manage your Google activity apply whether you’re using a mobile or desktop web browser.
You may find options to use the Google mobile app, but to access and manage activity, you need to use a web browser.
Keeping in mind that you cannot recover your history, it might be a good idea to back up your data.
You need to think twice if you really need to keep a history of your Chrome activity, Android device usage, Google searches or your YouTube search history. If you haven’t removed it before, it might be something important to look back on.
Now you need to select the services for which you want to back up your activity. By default, everything is selected; If you don’t need all the data, you can deselect your options.
Next, you will be asked to choose the file type and method of receiving the back-up. You can choose to receive back-ups directly to your Google Drive account, or receive a download link via email, among other options.
If you have a lot of data associated, this process may take several days to complete. So you should wait for it to finish before deleting your search history and other activities.
How to delete all your Google activity
You can easily delete any of your Google activity or all of it at once. Google provides a detailed level of setting to make this convenient.
