Android users can now have Google Assistant buy movie tickets and reserve seats for them, thanks to a new Google Duplex feature that makes it possible for the AI to access and navigate Chrome webpages on its own—much like how the Duplex AI allows Google Assistant to call restaurants or hotels for reservations on your behalf.

At launch, the feature supports more than 70 movie theatre chains like AMC and MJR Theatres, and ticket-buying services such as Fandango or Movietickets.com—even if they don’t have an app or if their websites aren’t normally configured for mobile browsers. Not only is this easier than navigating these companies’ websites directly, it’s also potentially faster than buying them and reserving seats on your own—which may help you get a seat for incredibly popular movies before they sell out.

Unlike when Google’s AI make a phone call and a reservation for you, buying movie tickets requires a little more input. Google Assistant will ask you questions such as how many tickets you want or which seats to reserve (if applicable).
