Moviegoers can now purchase tickets from Fandango by voice through the Google Assistant.
Voice-purchasing of tickets can be done through Google Home smart speakers, Android phones and televisions, according to an announcement by Fandango.
“We’ve built ticketing innovations for a wide variety of mobile, social, AI bot and voice-activated platforms, so we can super-serve moviegoers at scale, wherever and whenever they are thinking about and planning a trip to the movies,” stated Fandango president Paul Yanover. “We’re thrilled to be working with Google, bringing movie discovery and ticketing capabilities to users on the Google Assistant, and giving them access to the widest choice of theaters from their living room or while on the go.”
Owners of Google Home smart speakers can say “Hey Google, let’s buy tickets for Ready Player One,” after which Google Assistant provides the closest theaters playing the move along with show times.
Fandango has also incorporated the Google Pay digital payment platform into its ticketing service.
