Google has released its Duplex technology to the company’s Chrome browser, giving it the ability to purchase movie tickets…
At last year’s Google I/O event, the company introduced Duplex. It wowed the crowd and took over the internet, due to its life-like abilities.
For those unfamiliar, this is a digital assistant which makes phone calls, with a very convincing human voice. In fact, it immediately caused quite a bit of controversy because it sounds so real. Now, Google has put it into its Chrome browser.
Google Duplex Chrome Support can be Used to Purchase Movie Tickets Online
The new Google Chrome Duplex support works with movie ticket sites, such as AMC and Fandango.
Here’s how it works. Search for movie tickets using Google search in the Chrome browser. If available, the Google Assistant pops-up and then, Duplex takes the process over, requiring minimal user input.
Duplex takes the user over to the ticketing website and a persistent Google Assistant overlay surfaces, remaining through checkout. Assistant handles the payment, auto-completing most forms (populating information users previously saved in their Google accounts).
It speeds-up the buying process and will likely look a bit different as Google makes tweaks over time for improved experiences.
