Personalized book, movie and podcast recommendations for your next trip

The team at Likewise, known for their app that offers personalized recommendations for movies, TV shows, books, and podcasts, just launched a new AI companion called Pix. Pix builds on Likewise’s content and recommendation engine and makes it fun and easy to explore and find entertainment options on any topic, anytime.

If you’re like me, and you’re planning a trip to someplace new, you enjoy reading about your destination in the weeks or months leading up to the trip and like to travel with books -- fiction or non-fiction -- that enhance your travel experience and help you to learn about the history and culture of your destination.

Whether you’re heading to Mexico with your family and want to read about the history of Chichen Itza and Mayan Civilization before visiting the ruins, attending a destination wedding in Hawaii and want to download a couple of surf movies to watch on the flight, or planning a trip to Las Vegas with friends and want to queue up a few podcasts to sharpen your golf game or prep for the black jack table, Pix delivers a custom set of recommendations in seconds.

Pix is also great for more generic recommendation lists such as “funny movies about family vacations” or “movies about wedding planning.”

Recommendations from Pix

Pix typically returns a half dozen recommendations. That has its pros and cons. Pix lists are not comprehensive (there are likely other great options not included), but it’s also not overwhelming (you won’t be scrolling through results trying to decide what to read, watch or listen to). I expect Pix recommendations will continue to improve and be increasingly personalized over time.

So, if you’re looking for a good read for an upcoming trip, a show to binge on that long flight, or need a little humor to help you get through the group travel or event planning process, give Pix a try. Pix is free at, by email at, or by texting 1-877-839-8749.
