Well, Google’s just made booking movie all the more simpler.

Google quietly adds feature that lets you book movie tickets from within search

Google has partnered with a number of movie booking platforms including BookMyShow, Paytm and INOX to let you movie tickets from within search.

As per a report by Inc42, the feature isn’t limited to search within Android and iOS phones, but also available via the Google Assistant.

Google lets you pick your ideal show time and then redirects you to a ticketing platform to confirm your booking.

If you feel booking movie tickets via platforms like BookMyShow or Paytm is a tad too cumbersome, or if you just don’t feel like downloading a separate to book movie tickets, this new feature has you covered. To book movie tickets, simply search for ‘movies’ on Google which will allow the search giant to pop up cards of all the movies running in and around your location, along with details of where you can watch them and when.

You can select your movie of choice from these cards or also choose to filter the results to narrow your search down to the right cinema hall and the time. Depending on which show you pick, you will be redirected to a booking page within Paytm, BookMyShow or INOX to complete the purchase.

Interestingly, the feature doesn’t list PVR Cinemas among its partners just yet.

The other limitation of this feature is that you can’t choose which platform you want to book your ticket through. Google automatically chooses this for you. We hope Google changes this in the near future but for now, the feature does make things quite convenient.
