Kayak is a travel planning app for Android and iPhone (iOS) phones. The free service brings a function capable of measuring luggage size among its features. The tool uses augmented reality to calculate the dimensions of the object. The procedure is useful to know if your suitcase will be accepted as hand luggage by the airline such as Gol, Latam, Azul, Avianca and TAP or if you need to pay for the order.
Remember that the limits allowed by the airlines may vary and, therefore, the app brings a table with the specific information of each company to consult. In the following tutorial, check out how to use the Kayak app to measure the dimensions of your carry-on by mobile. The procedure was performed on an iPhone 8 with Apple's iOS 12, but the tips also apply to users of Google-powered devices.
