iOS 6.1 Siri Will Let You Buy Movie Tickets - Siri, although still in beta, is being improved over every version of iOS and Apple keeps adding new features and functionalities to your intelligent little Artificial Intelligence assistant. The iOS 6.1 Beta was just seeded to developers and it looks like it has some handy new features bundled with it, including one which now lets you purchase movie tickets by using Siri.
iOS 6.1 Siri Will Let You Buy Movie Tickets
Until now, Siri was only able to access movie reviews, display Showtimes and also play trailers but now it is much more intelligent. 9to5Mac reports that this new Siri feature, which is currently being beta tested by developers, lets you easily buy tickets by just asking Siri to do it for you. This feature is powered by the Fandango app available in the App Store. If Fandango isn’t installed on your iPhone/iPad yet, then Siri will ask you to do it before letting you buy movie tickets.
Have a look at their official statement below,
“When a user asks for movie tickets for a certain movie, the applicable Showtimes and theater information will be shown. Then, a user can click the buy movie tickets button and they will be routed to finish their purchase via the Fandango app from the App Store. If the user does not have Fandango installed, Siri provides a button to download the Fandango app.”
There is one catch though as Apple has made this Siri functionality exclusive to US as of now. Over that, this feature is currently in the early stages so it only supports a few theatres so you might have some trouble getting tickets to a theatre near you.
