While it can be helpful to see the nighttime rate of a rental, specifically if the length of your stay is fluid, not understanding just how much you're really going to pay in full can be discouraging. That is why this is such a considerable upgrade for the service.
In addition to showing users the total price of their stay, Airbnb will also prioritize search engine result by total cost instead of nightly rate. Previously, it was possible to game the system by setting a lower nighttime price and then tacking on a lot of fees at the end. Now, all of those costs will consider when the user sees the search results.

Chesky states that guests should not need to do laundry, strips the beds, or vacuum, however it's reasonable for hosts to anticipate their guests to throw away food, shut off the lights, and lock the door before they leave.
Chesky didn't share an accurate date, but all of these modifications ought to make their way to Airbnb eventually prior to the end of the year.
