• Device & app history: The app uses this to manage its own tasks and offer an improved experience when you switch between different sections of the app. For example, if you search for a hotel and then a flight, the app remembers your hotel progress so you can more easily plan multiple aspects of a trip at once.
• Identity: The app uses this so that Google+ users can sign in to their account on the app.
• Location: The app uses this to allow you to search for hotels, airports, and other places near your current location.
• Photos/Media/Files: The app uses this to display Google Maps. For example, you can toggle to a map-based view of hotel search results within the app.
• Camera/Microphone: Sometimes the app will prompt you to take a picture of something in connection with limited-time promotional offers.
