Google has collaborated with US-based ticketing company Fandango to let users buy movie tickets using voice commands on Google Assistant.

“Google has partnered with Fandango to offer movie ticket purchases from Google Assistant. To buy tickets, just say ‘buy tickets,’ or say, ‘Hey Google, get me tickets for…’,” The Verge reported late on Friday.

Fandango sells movie tickets via its website and through its mobile app.

“If you’re not sure what you want to see, just say, ‘showtimes near me,’ and Google will bring up a selection of films playing at theatres located near you. You can find out more about a film by asking ‘Who stars in it’,” the report said.

This feature is available on Apple’s Siri.

However, Google Assistant allows users to make the purchase without downloading the Fandango app. (IANS)

Google Assistant is finally coming to G Suite, starting with the Calendar app in beta within Googles enterprise platform.

In a blog post, which coincided with the announcement at the company’s Cloud Next conference in San Francisco, the tech giant outlined how the integration will work.

“Users with G Suite accounts can start testing with Assistant starting today,” said the company.

“G Suite is integrating with Google Assistant, specifically with Calendar,” said David Thacker, Vice President of Product Management, G Suite.

The Google Assistant can now connect with more than 5,000 devices for your home -- up from 1,500 this January, Google has announced.

“Now when you sign in and switch to your G Suite account, you can use your Assistant to help you prepare for the work day,” he said.

Since the integration is just an enterprise feature, it would not work on Assistant-compatible device synced to an individual’s personal account.

In addition, the company is also bringing other improvements including third-party connectivity in Cloud Search, updates to Hangouts Meet to help businesses stay connected and “connected sheets” feature to let workers collaborate on up to 10 billion rows of data right from within Sheets, the post noted.
