Google on Thursday revealed a feature that will allow users to buy movie tickets through Google Assistant if you happen to be in the United States or United Kingdom.
Using the company’s Duplex technology, which allows users to make restaurant reservations, users can now ask the Assistant to show them movie schedules.
“After selecting a theatre and time that works best for you, you’ll have the option to ‘Buy tickets’ with the Assistant,” Google explained on its website.
The feature is compatible with over 70 American cinemas, including AMC and Fandango, as well as the UK’s ODEON.

According to Google, the Assistant’s next goal is to help users order car rentals.
Earlier this week, the company also announced that the Assistant will now be able to read the latest news to users as well.
