Google is finally rolling out its Duplex artificial intelligence tool on the Web which is designed to let users more easily buy movie tickets online.

Currently available on Android phones, to use it, users can ask the Google Assistant to look up showtimes for a particular film in their area.

Google announced the service in May at the company’s annual I/O developer conference. The search giant will eventually expand the booking system to include car rental reservations, Cnet reported on Thursday.

The service uses the data users have saved in Google Chrome to pre-fill personal information where it is needed and analyses screens to either deliver its own prompts that are easy to respond to or let you interact with the website itself for a brief section, according to Android Police. (IANS)

Google has introduced a new feature ‘Focus Mode’ for Android devices designed to prevent its users from being consistently distracted by their smartphone.

The feature allows users to turn off distractions – like social media updates or email notifications – for a period of time, so a user can get things done without interruption.

Focus mode was first announced at Google’s developer conference in the summer as part of Android Q/10.
