Airbnb is testing a new TripAdvisor-like app



Looks like Airbnb wants you to use its services for more than just lodging. 

The company is reportedly testing a new app that gives you restaurant and local event suggestions, reports Bloomberg.

A test version of the app, called Airbnb Trips, was spotted on the Google Play Store.

The app features new travel services like restaurant reservations and city tours. Airbnb Trips also lets users access personal itineraries, city guidebooks, dining and happy hour events.

These features aren't entirely new to Airbnb. The flagship app has a neighborhood travel guide as of April.

The app's name and features could change before its release, which is still unknown, Bloomberg reports.

Some are likening the features of the beta app to a concierge service, similar to TripAdvisor and Yelp.
