Hey Google, Buy SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY Tickets

Hey Google, Buy SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY Tickets

Beginning today, you can now purchase tickets through Google Assistant by either using your voice or typing to it.

Online movie ticket retailer Fandango has partnered with Google to allow users to purchase movie tickets through the Assistant app via voice action.

As well as buying tickets, Assistant users will be able to request showtimes in their local area. "The launch couldn't come at a better time as we head into a very exciting summer movie season packed with movies for everyone", said Lilian Rincon, Product Management Director, Google Assistant. That includes showtimes near you, as well as information about the actors or the movie trailer.

Google says you can even preorder advance tickets for movies like Solo: A Star Wars Story, which launches on May 25th.

"Fandango is synonymous with moviegoing innovation, and was the ideal fit as we look to make it easier for people to get things done in their everyday lives with help from the Google Assistant".

For now, the feature is only available on Google Assistant for Android phones, but TechCrunch notes it's going to roll out on iOS devices later this year. Google Assistant will open the Fandango app so that the user can pick seats before completing the purchase. To do this, the user simply tells Assistant to "buy tickets".

As Search Engine Land speculates, Google will make more announcements like this, expanding Assistant's ability to make bookings or reservations with a number of services purely via voice commands.
