Google's most recent big push has been in the AI field, with its Google Assistant, an AI-based voice assistant. It works on numerous devices including smartphones, but its best use-case is seen on the Google Home smart speaker, which can give the user relevant information and content by simply speaking to the device.

Multiplex major PVR Cinemas recently launched its own skill on Google Home. The new skill enables users to seamlessly explore upcoming movies. Moreover, it also lets you check out show timings, location and ticket pricing. What is more, the skill is also accessible via the Google Home application on Android devices, said PVR Cinemas on Monday.
