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 has partnered Chinese technology company Lenovo to manufacture a new category of devices called “Smart Displays” which are interactive screens for smart home devices with Google Assistant.

“With the Google Assistant built in, the Lenovo Smart Display brings you the best of Google services, including Maps, YouTube, Calendar, Duo and Photos, in a visual and helpful way,” Chris Turkstra, Product Management Director, Google Assistant wrote in a blog post on Thursday.

With the interactive touch-and-voice combination, “Smart Display” would enable users to multitask and control their smart home devices with simple voice commands and touch gestures.

With “Smart Display,” Google is also offering three free months of YouTube Premium service for new subscribers.
