- Google Assistant now supports movie ticket sales directly through the Assistant app.
- The feature is part of a partnership with Fandango, so only Fandango theatres will be supported for now.
- The new movie tickets feature is just in time for Solo: A Star Wars Story!
You can now buy tickets to the movies using voice commands through Google Assistant. You can try it out right now to buy tickets to Solo: A Star Wars Story, which went on sale today. It is May the Fourth, after all!
To buy tickets, simply say “Hey Google, buy tickets,” or “Hey Google, get me tickets for Solo: A Star Wars Story.” Once you do, Google Assistant on your smartphone will bring up available showtimes in your area for the movie.
If you don’t know what you want to see, you can simply say “showtimes near me.” Once it brings up the list of films, you can ask questions about them, like “who stars in it” or “show me the trailer.”
You can see the whole process in action in the YouTube video below:
This new ticket-buying feature is a partnership through Fandango, so that means you are likely restricted to theatres that are in the Fandango network.
Speaking of Star Wars, the Google Play Store is celebrating May the Fourth with a Death Star-sized collection of discounted apps and media related to the franchise. You can see the full list here. Also, check out our in-depth roundup of the discounts here!
