“If you’re not sure what you want to see, just say, ‘showtimes near me,’ and Google will bring up a selection of films playing at theatres located near you. You can find out more about a film by asking ‘Who stars in it’,” the report said.
This feature is available on Apple’s Siri.
However, Google Assistant allows users to make the purchase without downloading the Fandango app.
