Now this is cool. You can now buy movie tickets through Google Assistant on your phone. No installing any apps — just ask Google for showtimes, then tap a couple more times, and you've purchased tickets. It works on Android phones and Google Home speakers (though the latter wasn't live for me yet), with iOS support coming later this year.
It's a pretty straightforward process. Ask Google Assistant for showtimes. Pick one, and tell it you want to buy tickets. You'll have to accept some terms and conditions the first time, of course, but only that one time. After that, it doesn't get much easier, with no other apps to download. And it'll use your payment info through Google Pay.
You still have to find your own date, though.
