check the availability of hotel rooms it can show you the result in the chat itself.


The app provides you with the feature of adjusting the font size of the text which can be increased or decreased by adjusting the volume slider to shout or whisper. If set to
“shout” the text is larger in size whereas “whisper” makes the text small.
